The guy of New Jersey only had one way to rid himself of the massive tumor on the neck and now threatened his life: to kill it.
Nevertheless, its location has rendered this a dangerous initiative.
During the past six months, Milton Wingert (81) had visited many doctors, but the majority of people were concerned about how to prevent progress.
So Dr. Nazir Khan of Mount Sinai Hospital, a head- and neck specialist, went to Wingert and asked him to do it.
The men talked extensively about what might happen during the operation–including potential complications. Khan said what was being communicated to CNN, “I want everyone to be prepared for every scenario before we step into the operating room.”
“If a case becomes more complicated, my thinking process is always about, what is the best-case scenario, what is the worst-case scenario.
The seven-hour surgery was successful. Khan said he was losing between 5 and 7 pounds from the malignant tumor.
And the recovery of his patient is just the start.

“I know that he will need more therapy, and that is why, because I know he has a road to go yet, my training made me cautiously optimistic.”
“And you know, I’m happy with him as I know he had to do reconstruction and he did well before surgery, it was relatively quicker than we expected.”
At the hospital, Wingert has recovered and has refused to talk to CNN. He allowed his doctor to talk about the case.

Wingert met the surgeon of head and neck in Mount Sinai Hospital, Dr. Nazir Khan, earlier this month for the procedure to be scheduled. The tumor had, by that time, has grown to approximately 23 cm /about 9 inches— the size of a football.
“It was the[ tumor] worst I ever had,” says Khan. “It had brought him the significant quality of life[ issue], so I was sorry it had reached that point.” The tumor would have compressed Wingert if Khan had continued to grow.
In the case of a tumor that proved complicated, thoracic and vascular surgeons stood by during the Nov 5 operation. “We are preparing for the worse, but we were hopeful for the best,” says Khan.
Luckily, without delay, the operation went ahead. Although Wingert is likely to continue under additional treatment such as radiation and chemotherapy, he gets well. He is predicted to be away from the hospital early— he expects to be born later this month.
