Yang Huimin, a 28-year-old man from Central Chinaâ€™s Henan Province, had what he thought was a pimple on face when he was 4. But during the next 24 years, the small swelling grew bigger and bigger, eventually covering the entire left side of his face.
A 19-hour operation on Yang’s abnormal skull ended successfully yesterday at the Beijing-based No 304 Hospital of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, chief surgeon Li Anmin told China Daily yesterday.
Yang, who went to Beijing from Henan in February for treatment, said his biggest wish after the operations is to find a wife. He had seldom stepped outside his home during the past 20 years.
