    Security guard with large tumour growing on his face for 12 years gets sacked after customers complained about his looks. Pictures

    A security guard, Sipho Hadebe, who has had a large tumour growing on his face for 12 years, was recently sacked from his job because his appearance was beginning to startle customers.

    According to MailOnline, 39-year-old Hadebe, has been living with the gradually expanding growth for 12 years. The tumour has now got so large that he struggles to breathe.

    Hadebe after running a test in the hospital was told by the doctors that the tumour is putting pressure on his respiratory airway and that within a year he would no longer be able to breathe.

    Hadebe’s local hospital had had him on a waiting list, which meant he would have had to wait for seven years before he could have the operation to remove the tumour - the only way he can get his job back. He however, began to raise funds in a desperate attempt to relieve his suffering. Strangers have currently donated more than £2,000, to help him and he is set to undergo a private treatment that experts believe will save his life.

    A team of doctors at Lowveld Hospital, in Mpumalanga provice, South Africa, have offered their services to ease the pressure on his lungs. They will perform a seven-hour reconstructive surgery once all of the funds - believed to be around the £3,000, are in place for his rehabilitation.
