 Xray scan of Grace's face with Tumour image courtesy-http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/teenager-giant-tumour-size-football-4395523


Grace's case is an extreme one , her tumor had grown to "the size of a football" as the daily mail described. In the scan one can easily observe how attached the tumor is to all the other structures and tissues in Grace's face. The tumour has completely destroyed her teeth and jaws and is attached to vital veins. The fact that the tumor is on her face made the prospect of removing her tumour the more risky , due to the proximity to the brain.Also the tumor had been developing for so many years that it had now become a solid part of Grace's body.
