The hospital in eastern Spain said there were only about five cases of such giant tumours in the world.

The woman was referred to the hospital by her family doctor after complaining of discomfort and weight gain in her torso.

Doctors detected a "giant cystic tumour", 41 centimetres long in the woman's womb.
