LOOK: Mexican Boy Takes Viagra To Shrink Neck Tumor Prior To Surgery

Mexican boy takes Viagra to shrink neck tumor prior to surgery

Two years after being rescued by U.S. officials from one of Mexico’s deadliest cities, an 11-year-old boy finally has a heavy burden lifted off his shoulders. Jose Serrano of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, underwent a 12-hour surgery in the U.S. at the University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital to remove a massive tumor 30 centimeters in length and about 4 inches wide, covering his neck, shoulder, and torso.

The surgery involved 25 medical professionals made possible with the help of charity, a Baptist church, and the New Mexico governor.

For a while, doctors gave the boy Viagra. Apparently, the same ingredients that give grandpa a boner also help reduce the size of tumors in children. Although the tumor wasn’t cancerous, and the oral medication was working to shrink the tumor, surgery was still recommended as the best option for the boy.

After a 12-hour operation involving 25 medical professionals, the boy is now recovering at the University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital.
