Mexican doctors have successfully removed a 15 kg benign tumor from the body of a 2-year-old Jesus, who weighed only 12 kilograms.He is a resident of Duragno in Northern Mexico.

Doctors say Jesus Rodriguez was born with a benign lump that eventually ballooned to cover the right side of his body, stretching from his armpit to his hip.

The surgery took place at the La Raza Medical Center in Mexico City on June 14, and Hernandez said it took doctors over 10 hours to remove the tumor.

The boy is reportedly said to be recovering and doing well.
