According to a statement from the government of Lunda Sul, to which VerAngola had access, the aggressive fibromatosis surgery, which aimed to extract a rare benign tumor weighing three kilos from the teenager's buttocks, was carried out successfully this Tuesday.

It was the teenager himself, António Sonhi, who noticed the tumor, having noticed that "something strange" was growing in that area of ​​the body, "which was gradually making it difficult to move his legs".

However, the teenager, "withdrawn from the fact", ended up managing this situation discreetly "for more than four years".

The family and other people close to them were taken by surprise, having seen "all attempts to treat the situation from hospitals in Luena", in Moxico, frustrated, the note said.

However, it was in Lunda Sul – the province where António is from, namely Dala – that the patient and his family found the solution to this problem.

António's mother, moved by the speed and effectiveness in resolving this problem that threatened his ability to move, expressed her deep gratitude "for the action of the entire team".

After a successful mission, Zango Jonasse, clinical director of the unit, "praised the competence of the team of professionals who sought appropriate solutions to restore health and self-esteem to the patient and family", the note reads.

The official also said that the medical team accepted the challenge of treating a patient with a "rare case", who desperately asked for help on social media, after seeing "treatments in several hospitals based in the city of Luena, province of Moxico, where he initially appealed".
