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.
