C-section for pregnant woman after tumour found

25th May 2012

Doctors carried out an emergency caesarean on a woman after they discovered she had a kidney tumour that was bigger than the baby.

Gemma Fletcher from Sheffield was eight months pregnant when doctors found a tumour weighing 7.5lbs on one of her kidneys. She had the c-section at the city’s Royal Hallamshire Hospital where Ava Lily was born weighing 6.4lbs and later transferred to the Northern General Hospital where doctors tried to shrink the tumour but eventually, nine weeks after the birth, had to surgically remove it.
