Local Man Travels To Europe For Life-Saving Operation

Experimental Cancer Surgery Performed In Sweden

BALTIMORE -- Christopher Lyles is heading to Stockholm, Sweden for a groundbreaking surgery -- still considered experimental -- that is the only medical intervention that will help him.

The 30-year-old Harford County engineer has a cancerous tumor in his trachea. Lyles said radiation and chemotherapy helped shrink, but not eradicate, the tumor.

“They told me the tumor was too large. Every thoracic surgeon I went to told me it was too large to take out," he said.
