Toddler-Sized Ovarian Tumor Removed From Texas Woman

A Houston woman thought she was just gaining weight—but it turned out she had a basketball-sized tumor growing in her ovary. However, insurance issues meant she had to wait six months for an operation to remove the benign growth, and by then it had expanded to the size of a toddler, KHOU reported. “I got scared because it just looks like something out of a Goosebumps movie,” Brandy Contreras’ daughter Karina said. Doctors told Contreras, who lives in Houston, that the tumor had probably been growing for a decade.
