Oral cancer eats up tobacco addict's face – 14 de septiembre de 2015 – India

BENGALURU: Imagine having to live without a cheek, upper and lower jaws, parts of eyes, nose, sinus and the base of the skull. That's the story of Adil (name changed), a mouth cancer patient from Shivamogga who lost a portion of his face due to tobacco addiction. 

Today, a piece of bone taken from his leg serves as his lower jaw, muscle from the chest forms a part of his palate and his thigh muscle serves as his tongue. The 33-year-old recently underwent a re-constructive surgery during which a tumour as big as a cricket ball was removed from his mouth.
