Man with deadly face cancer tumour offered free surgery by doctor after Instagram post

A man with "deadly face cancer tumour" on the right-hand side of his face has been offered life-saving treatment after a surgeon saw his story on social media. 

Sebastian Alejandro Amurin D’Amico, 23, from Moreno, Buenos Aires, Argentina suffers from Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), a highly malignant form of cancer that develops from skeletal muscle cells.

At the moment the tumour is on his cheek but it is rapidly growing and could be fatal.

He stopped radiotherapy treatment because of the extreme pain and in 2019 he shared his story on Instagram.

Eduardo Sosa reportedly contacted D’Amico and offered to examine him in the capital Buenos Aires and then operate on him if possible.

Sosa told reporters: “It is important to keep in mind that this is health and that to generate a surgical intervention everything will depend on the patient’s condition because the surgery can be very successful but still harm him.”

 D’Amico said: “I am very happy with this opportunity. I am proud to know that there are surgeons who dare to do the operation.”

He added: “In 2014 I started to feel a lump in my right jaw, I thought it was a pimple but it kept growing, so I had a consultation at the Ramos Mejia Hospital. There they decided to do a biopsy.

 “In January 2015 I received the results and all the data conclusively confirmed that I had this cancer.”

He underwent surgery in 2018 but the tumour returned so he started radiotherapy. 

D’Amico has received 220,000 pesos (£2,648) in online donations and said: “Today we are campaigning, but with the issue of coronavirus and the increase in the dollar it is really complicated”. 

It is unclear if D’Amico has yet been examined by Sosa.
