9 hours to make a man smile. Removing a tumour and reconstructing a face.

In Congo, 47-year-old Kiriza Mulume Oderhwa was diagnosed with a tumour on the left side of his mouth. The tumour and the pain grew despite two operations. At HCG, specialists removed the malignancy and reconstructed Mulume’s face – a rare procedure, involving a multi-disciplinary team, performed at very few hospitals in the world. Now he’s back to routine life and talking about his journey. Thanks to the specialist in cancer care.
