This Girl Was Sure She Was Pregnant, But Turned Out It Was A Cancerous Tumor

Date May 22, 2019

A girl named Lauren Knowles from Scotland was over the moon when she discovered she was pregnant again.

By that time, her firstborn Charlie grew up a bit, and she thought it would be so great for him to have a little brother or sister. Lauren enjoyed every moment of expecting another baby. Until the moment, when on the 7th week she found out that her pregnancy was not a pregnancy at all, but a terrible life-threatening disease.

The fact is that the fertilized egg was defective, and scanning showed that Loren was having a molar pregnancy. Instead of a fetus, there was a cancerous tumor growing in the girl's belly.

Despite having an emergency operation and a course of chemotherapy, the cancer cells continued to grow at an alarming rate. Lauren lost her hair, but not hope of surviving this nightmare and returning to her normal life.

After a long struggle, the girl's body finally rejected the malignant lesion, and when she went to the toilet, the tumor came out.

In the hospital bathroom that night I used a bed pan over the toilet and gave 'birth' that to the tumour that had made itself a home in my womb for the past five months.

- Lauren remembered. Now she is finally healthy.

A year later, she became pregnant again. Naturally, throughout all the term the girl was uneasy worrying that something would go wrong again, but fortunately, there were no surprises and she gave birth to a healthy and beautiful girl named Indi.


I want to give people hope that even in the worst scenarios, what seems impossible is still possible, while raising more awareness to molar pregnancy

- said the mother of two.

It’s such a relief that this story has a happy ending!
