Mr Pal, a shopkeeper from the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, had watched the tumour grow for three years. Examination revealed a tumour measuring 30 x 30 x 20 cm, shocking the living daylights out of the medical staff at the hospital, who had never seen such a large one before.

"He had lost his vision due to the huge tumor but his eyesight will improve gradually now", he said. The mass was clinging to the back of Pal's head; his skull and hair grew over the top of it. But that 10 percent put pressure on Pal's brain, damaging his vision; it could have led to further problems, including paralysis and neurological damage, the doctors told The Hindu.

For the past several years, Santlal Pal had been watching the tumour emerge from his skull. The doctors said that they hope Pal will regain his vision.
