Dr. Boulay Discusses Removing a 140-Pound Tumor

Richard Boulay, M.D.

Richard Boulay, M.D., chief of the division of Gynecologic Oncology at the Lehigh Valley Health Netowrk, tells the story of removing a 140-pound tumor from Mary Clancy. The tumor had been growing for at least 10 years when it was caught by a CAT scan, and was about half her body weight.

It was a low grade ovarian cancer, and doctors were able to remove it without breaking it, so she did not require chemotherapy. Dr. Boulay describes Clancy’s high spirits and optimism, which contributed to the success of her treatment.
