Man With Giant Nose to Get Free Treatment

Surgeons have agreed to offer free treatment to a 41-year-old Chinese man, known locally as Hippo Man, because of his large nose. According to reports, Fei Jianjun suffers from a nasal carcinoma that began as a small bump on the end of his nose last September, but it now covers so much of his face and left him unable to leave his home out of fear the sight of him and the tumor will make people physically ill. “I try my best not to go out, as my family is too poor to compensate others if I scare them and make them sick,” he says. Doctors say if he doesn't get treatment now, he could die in six months.
