A Chinese man is recovering from surgery. Doctors managed to extirpate the huge tumors that disfigured his face.
Wu Qiang, 33, was born with a small bump on the face, but in 2005 began to grow rapidly and years later, his face was completely covered in huge tumors.
They had grown even above his eyes, leaving him virtually blind.
Qiang was later diagnosed by hemangiomas – benign tumors of endothelial cells lining the blood vessels.
About 30 percent of hemangiomas are present at birth, and the rest appear in the first months of life.
They usually disappear within 10 years.
But Qiang did not work because they rarely left home because of his appearance.
Now he underwent surgery to remove facial tumors by donations from the public.
Qiang said: “My greatest desire is to keep my family and volunteering to help others after my recovery.”
