MEXICO CITY - Mexican doctors say they have removed a 33-pound (15-kilogram) tumor from the body of a 2-year-old child who weighed only 26 pounds (12 kilograms).

Dr. Gustavo Hernandez says the child from the northern state of Durango was born with a lump that eventually covered the right side of his body from his armpit to his hip.

Hernandez says it took doctors at the La Raza Medical Center in Mexico City 10 hours to remove the tumor on June 14. Hernandez is the director of pediatrics at La Raza hospital.

He says the boy is recovering and doing well. The doctor also said Tuesday that the operation was the first time Mexican doctors have removed a tumor bigger than the person carrying it.
