During the seven-hour surgery, doctors removed the massive tumor along with skull bone which had moved into the brain.

A team comprising of six surgeons of Nair's Hospital in Mumbai have managed to operate on a 31 year old man's tumor and successfully remove it too. Only about 10 percent of the tumor developed inside the skull.

Pal is now recovering in the intensive care unit and is in stable condition, according to The Hindu.

"Such large tumors are rare and are a surgical challenge", Dr. Trimurti Nadkarni, the lead surgeon, told news service SWNS.

The Hindu news site reported that Pal's brain tumor had been growing for several years - most rapidly in the past year.

It is not yet clear whether or not Pal's sight has been restored following the procedure, but the BBC reports that doctors are hopeful that he will regain his vision as he continues to recover from the extreme operation. Doctors expect Pal's vision to improve. "He feels relieved of 'a large burden on his head". "The part of the tumor within the skull was removed by making an opening in the skull", Nadkarni said. If the tumor had not been removed, future growth likely would have led to lasting neurological damage and paralysis.

Nikki Haley to Chief Palestinian Negotiator: 'I Will Not Shut Up'
Middle East negotiator, were seated directly behind Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, for the Abbas address. Ms Haley called on Mr Abbas to be courageous enough to move on from anger at the decision to relocate the United States embassy.

He needed a transfusion of 11 units of blood, and also had to spend three days on life support after the surgery, but is now thankfully on the mend. Though he is still blind, the team hopes that Mr Pal will regain vision as swelling in his brain, caused by the body responding to the trauma of surgery, continues to go down over time.

He had been to three hospitals in Uttar Pradesh before the procedure in Mumbai but the doctors in those places had termed the tumor untreatable.

"We had to cut open the scalp and remove the tumor", Nadkarni, the neurosurgeon, told the Hindu. It is also unclear what type of a brain tumour he was suffering from. As of now, the tumor was sent for biopsy and results are expected by next week.
