If You Feel Something, Say Something: Woman Unaware She Had 50-Lb. Tumor Inside Her

Published on 17 Jan 2019, 0:16
Brenda Cridland of Meridian, Idaho, thought she was gaining weight because of menopause.
In fact, the Huffington Post reports she actually had a 50-pound tumor that had been growing inside her for decades!
Cridland says she had chalked up her weight gain to aging, but saw a doctor when her health began to decline.
That’s when a CAT scan revealed the enormous tumor had displaced her organs and was cutting off her brain's blood supply.
Cridland said she underwent two-and-a-half hours of surgery to remove the mass, which luckily was benign.
Losing 65 pounds in the process, Cridland learned the tumor was caused by undiagnosed endometriosis.
Having admittedly ignored red flags about her own health, she says she hopes other women won't avoid seeing a doctor!
