Indian surgeons have removed the world's biggest tumour from a woman's kidney - and it was 50 times the size of her organ.
Manju Devi, 28, had complained of a 'lump' on her right side for three years before a scan revealed a huge 31cm by 19 cm mass.

It took a team of surgeons eight hours to remove the 12lb (5.5kg) tumour from her kidney, which had dwarfed her other organs.
The team at the Lokmanya Tilak Municipal General Hospital at Sion in Mumbai said a normal kidney weighs between 110g and 140g.
Experts at the Guinness Book of World Records have since confirmed it to be the largest renal tumour ever discovered.
