A woman has been transferred to the hospital after complaints of agitated breathing led to a tragic diagnosis.

The 53-year-old Malaysian woman was taken to the KK Women and Children's Hospital in Singapore, where doctors discovered a 28-kilogram tumor in the womb.

The woman underwent multiple surgeries to remove the abnormally large uterine fibroid that had been growing without treatment for more than 10 years, Live Science reported.

According to Poh Ting Lim, an obstetrics / gynecology resident at the hospital, the unidentified woman may have been too scared to undergo surgery to remove her.

The pelvic tumor appears in the woman's biological reproductive years and grows over time if left untreated.

It can only endanger life if it grows to an abnormally large size and interferes with organs.

The doctors were forced to cut 63.5 centimeters in length to eliminate the tumor weighing 27.8 kilograms along with their ovaries and fallopian tubes.

The patient was described as an "untouched virgin" in her menopausal stages. She was bedridden and had been struggling to breathe for six months when she arrived at the hospital.

Most women do not know when a tumor is forming, but generally experience symptoms such as heavy and prolonged menstrual periods, pelvic pain, constipation, and frequent urination.

In 2009, a uterine fibroid weighing 26 kilograms was removed from a postmenopausal woman. The largest tumor removed in the registry weighed 63 kilograms in a dead patient.

There is no indication of what causes uterine fibroids, but it is believed that genetics and hormones contribute.
