It is amazing how many people have tumors/neoplasia growing and will leave it for years without getting treatment or not find a doctor willing to help.

In this video you will see how Dr Ryan Osborne and Dr Jason Hamilton of OHNI (Osborne Head & Neck Institute) helped Madeline reclaim her life back from a Parotid Tumor as big as her own head! She can now enjoy life again with family and friends and live a happy and fulfilling life!

Neoplasia and tumor are terms that are commonly used interchangeably to refer to the abnormal growth of a new cell mass. The behaviour of the cell mass can be further described by using terms such as benign or malignant. Benign tumors typically demonstrate slow growth patterns and do not invade adjacent tissues. Malignant tumors can exhibit more aggressive growth patterns as well as invade adjacent tissues. Malignant tumors can metastasize and spread to distant body sites. While benign tumors do not typically exhibit the aggressive characteristics of their malignant counterparts, they can on occasion undergo malignant transformation.

Madeline Garcia lives in a small town in New Jersey. She has been living there for over 30 years. She first felt a small bump behind her ear at a BBQ. It grew so rapidly and it doubled in 10 years.

The tumor looked like a second head. It was all the way extended from her ear to her jawline and into her neck. There were blood vessels running over the top of it that were the size of a jugular vein.

Normally a tumor gets placed into a specimen cup. This tumor was so big they had to place it in a specimen bucket.

The danger of removing any parotid tumor is that the parotid gland is situated very close to the facial nerve. The main risk with any removal is that the nerve can be damaged and permanent paralysis can occur to the face!

There’s something unique about being a medical professional, that no other profession can capture. The human element of a patient giving their life over to another. It is a huge responsibility!
