13 year hell for Chinese man after traditional practice
Online Desk:A desperate Chinese man has disclosed how he has spent the past 13 years living with a gigantic tumor in his neck.
After wounding himself at work, Wang Zhixiang resorted to a traditional practice to cure his pain - but it caused an unusual reaction.
His neck more than doubled in size, making it almost impossible for him to lead a simple life.
The 55-year-old is now begging for help from strangers as he is unable to afford treatment to remove the growth of fat.
Doctors have said that he needs to raise more than 100,000 Chinese yuan (£11,600) to undergo surgery - or the mass will continue to expand.
After cricking his neck while doing work as a laborer in 2004, he went to a visit to his local doctor in Jilin City, China.
