Man told for years he was ‘just fat’ has 130-pound tumor removed

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — A Mississippi man is recovering at a hospital in California after doctors removed a 130-pound benign tumor.

For 15 years, the tumor had grown on Roger Logan’s abdomen until it reached the size of a small adult, according to KERO.

“Usually at home I would sit and it would rest on the floor,” Logan, 57, said about the tumor that he says doctors dismissed for years as “just fat.”

Logan said he was practically confined to a reclining chair inside a room he rarely left.

“They said it’s just fat, you’re just fat … it’s just fat developing there,” Logan said.

Doctors believe the benign tumor likely started because of an ingrown hair, then grew quickly.

“From here up I was a normal person,” Logan said, explaining what his daily struggle was like. “I used to say ‘Put a strap around you and (carry) three bags of cement around you all day long, just swinging.'”
