Emanuel Zayas, 14, had surgery in Miami to treat the benign tumor, but he later developed kidney and lung complications.

While the operation was effective, the 14-year-old Cuban kid endured kidney and lung confusions days after the fact, as indicated by the Miami Herald.

Emanuel Zayas was born with a rare disorder called polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, a condition that replaces multiple areas of bones with fibrous tissue and may cause fractures and deformity of the legs, arms and skull.

The tumor had been growing since he was 11, when what he thought was a pimple on his nose was actually skull bone growing from his upper jaw. "If nothing is done it will cause a fracture of his neck or it will suffocate him from breathing, just by its physical size".
