Baby Has Teratoma Removed

Baby Has Teratoma Removed

Another Monday is upon us and today we’re looking at one of my favorite tumors…teratomas!! We’ve featured teratoma before but this one is being removed from a tiny little baby. The poor thing is only 12 days old and has a tumor attached to their mouth as big as them. We don’t get to see the actual removal of the tumor but they cut it open afterwards and it’s as gross on the inside as it is on the outside. One particular cut causes a big squirt of nasty to shoot out. It looks like they’re dissecting a little alien with all of that tissue formed inside. From the look at the baby’s mouth after the surgery, he/she will probably have to go through at least one more procedure to properly fix the mouth.
