Small seal developed into a huge tumor
Ganesh Bhagat Chaurasia was born in the state of Bihar, which is located in the east of India. On the face of baby Ganesha parents noticed a small seal, which gradually began to increase in size.
The older Hindu, the more grew the tumor. Father Ganesh was a wealthy farmer and was able to take his son to the doctors who examined the unusual patient.
"My parents tried to find at least some way, that would save me from the build-up. They spend thousands of rupees on doctors, but still refused to treat me. Only one surgeon offered to do the surgery, while informing parents that my chances of survival does not exceed 10%. It was too risky, so mother and father chose to leave things as they are "- says Chaurasia.
After his parents' death man has inherited 30 acres of agricultural land profitable, but was unable to take possession of the land - the uncle Ganesh took away all the teenager.
"I tried to fight it with the help of the court, but was left with nothing, because my uncle knew all the local officials. Employees do not want to talk to me and let the office, ostensibly because of my frightening appearance. I found a job and was engaged in plumbing for many years. But was forced to leave their employment because of the proliferation of skin formation, close my eyes, "- says 65-year-old Indian. The locals did not help lonely Ganesha left without a livelihood. Most people do not even want to approach fellow villager from the face deformation.
Seeing this situation, the man decided to leave their homes and move to the city Hardivar, State of Uttarakhand, where no one had ever seen before.
Citizens reacted to the new resident with compassion and understanding: sympathetic Indians began offering disabled shelter, clothing and food.
"These people are very kind and generous. I do not need to beg because they bring me food, a variety of things and money. At first I did not want to take the rupee, but then I thought that maybe God has created me to do it and that's my way. Some people think I'm the reincarnation of Ganesh, others believe that I am the devil. I do not care about their opinion. I live as I see fit, "- concludes Chaurasia.
Plastic surgeons who learned about the illness from Indian newspapers, put him in absentia diagnosed with neurofibromatosis - a hereditary disease that leads to the emergence of benign tumors.
