Nguyen Duy Hai, 31, of Da Lat has been carrying a tumor weighing 80 kg below his waist for the last 10 years.

When Hai was four, the lower part of his right leg began to develop extra growth. 

By the time he was 17, it weighed an estimated 25 kg. His family took him to the Lam Dong General Hospital for treatment, but doctors failed to identify the cause.

His family later asked doctors to amputate the excess growth.

But in 2001 it began to develop into a tumor that kept growing larger and larger until it covered the entire bottom portion of his body.

At its largest, the tumor is more than a meter.

Hai relies on by his 61-year-old mother for all his daily activities, including personal hygiene.

He hopes doctors can remove the tumor.
