Man Labeled ‘Just Fat’ By Doctors Had 130-Pound Tumor Caused By Ingrown Hair


A Mississippi man described how doctors would insist his massive weight gain was nothing more than obesity until finally one medical professional realized the man had a 130-pound benign growth inside of him.

“They said it’s just fat, you’re just fat,” Logan recounted from his hospital bed. “It’s just fat developing there,” Roger Logan told  KERO

Likely caused by an ingrown hair, the human-sized tumor developed over 15 years until it eventually hung from Logan’s midsection, its weight confining him to a chair for much of his time.

The afflicted man likened the immense lump to “carrying three bags of cement around you all day long, just swinging.”

Fortunately, months of research brought him to Memorial Hospital in Bakersfield, Calif., where he met with Dr. Vipul Dev.

Having worked with patients who have had similar problems, Dev properly diagnosed Logan’s tumor, moving quickly to remove the growth.

After a successful procedure, Dev told KERO, “We are very fortunate that we can do this surgery with little to no complications.”

For his part, Logan said he’s got one last operation to do before he goes home: getting some California tacos.
