A man in Slovakia has had a massive 6kg tumour removed from his face.

Stefan Zoleik first noticed the growth 10 years ago and was diagnosed with madelung's disease, a rare condition that sees fatty tumours grow out of control.

"Everyone used to stop and look at me and it used to bother me everytime I moved my head," Zoleik said.

The surgery took five hours but Zoleik is thrilled with his new look, saying "much better than it was before, which was horrible. This is amazing."
