A baby girl has been born in Sheffield with a huge tumour which accounted for a sixth of her body weight.

The orange-sized growth was so large it was crushing Isabel Roberts’ throat leaving her unable to breathe naturally. Doctors needed to rapidly fit a tube to help her breathing before she stopped getting oxygen from her mother. The tumour has since been removed and doctors expect Isabel to make a full recovery.

Thankfully she is alright. Here is a photo: Twin born with orange sized tumor Laughing
