Rare tumor successfully removed by Kurnool KIMS Doctors
Kurnool, 3rd April 2023: K.Jayamma, a 44-year-old woman, who belongs to Puttayapalli village of Badwel Mandal in YSR district has got a very rare tumor. As the place of the tumor was near the urinary tract, she has some problems with urination and consulted some doctors. They sent her to KIMS hospital in Kurnool. Dr. Manoj Kumar, the consultant urologist, who tested and treated her explains the details.
"Inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) is a non-cancerous tumor. This occurs rarely. Generally, it occurs in smokers or people who are exposed to any chemicals. But we are not able to say exactly how it happened in this case. Jayamma came to us saying that she was experiencing severe pain in the urinary bladder. Knowing that she had a tumor, we first removed a small piece and sent it for a biopsy. In that test, it was found that it was benign, i.e. non cancerous. The result was the same in the repeated test too. So we decided to remove the tumor completely, and then test it. However, before the surgery could be performed, the tumor first slipped down and blocked the urethra. She stopped urinating.
As soon as she came back to us, we took up immediate surgery and removed the tumor, which was about five to six centimeters in size. When the removed tumor was sent for testing, it was found to be a rare type of inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT). It is very rare in medical history. There are only about 100 cases worldwide to date. Such a case came to Kurnool KIMS Hospital from Badvelu in the YSR district. We have successfully removed the tumor and relieved her," Dr. Manoj Kumar said.
