Tasha’s Jilka eyes (19 years) continue watering due to a rare cancer called olfactory neuroblastoma, which grows in the back of the nose and cause the doctor must reconstruct the entire face.
His suffering began in May 2008, when he was 16 years old. A rare cancer diagnosis eventually was made a year after he first experienced symptoms of watery eyes.
“My left eye is very watery, but I guess it’s just because the make-up. But it’s getting worse and I decided to go to a general practitioner,” said Tasha Jilka, who came from Leicester, England, as reported by Dailymail.
In addition to its cosmetic allergies, Tasha also assumed a cold and the weather condition that will disappear by itself. However, because after a while do not get better, he also consults to the optician, but did not find anything.
Four months later, her condition worsened and she was admitted to hospital Cambridgeshire, because he lives near there at that time.
Tasha had surgery to clear blocked drains his eyes, but still only sodium absorption ratio to solve the problem. In 2009, when he and his family moved to Leicester, he returned to consult a doctor and was referred to a specialist at Leicester Royal Infirmary.
“I had an eye test yanag but doctors at the same time it also raised my nose and saw a lump,” said Tasha.
Biopsy was done and some time later diagnosed with a rare cancer Tasha. In May 2010 Tasha had surgery to remove tumors.
At that time his condition was so severe that the surgeon must reconstruct his nose and he’s still having problems with vision in one eye.
He has undergone two major operations, one to remove the tumor and the second to rebuild his nose. It also makes the shape of his face changed.
“I feel if it can be diagnosed early and know more about the symptoms, I may not have to undergo two major surgeries such. I have lost a lot of sense in my face and the sense of smell,” said Tasha.
