Baby girl with a rare cancerous tumor in her mouth takes a risky flight to London for treatment

All the necessary preparations had been made and the family was only waiting for the tickets from Malaysia Airlines (MAS). The family is so thankful to all the generous people who donated money for this cause.

Father Ahmad Saifuddin said despite knowing the risk in taking Ainul Mardhiah to London, he and his family remained hopeful and positive as they prepare for the flight to Malaysia. Ahmad hopes for a safe journey and many prayers for his little girl.

A baby girl with a huge cancerous tumor covering her mouth is being flown to the UK for treatment.

Ainul Mardhiah Ahmad Safiuddin has been receiving chemotherapy since she was three months old – but it has done little to slow the growth.

The now nine-month-old is thought to have an extragonadal germ-cell tumour, which occurs when cells that ordinarily form sperm and eggs get misplaced in the womb.

Ainul is due to travel from her home in the state constituency of Ayer Molek, in south-western Malacca State, Malaysia, to London for an MRI scan and subsequent treatment.

Her father Ahmad Safiuddin Ahmad Razak, 24, has thanked those who donated towards his daughters’ flight, adding the family are now just waiting for the tickets to be processed.

Two doctors from a private hospital in Malaysia will fly with the family to London, where another medic will reportedly greet them at the airport.

Mr Razak said flying could prove ‘risky’ for his daughter due to her condition. He did not confirm which London hospital his daughter will be treated at. 

It is therefore unknown whether Ainul’s therapy will be at a private clinic or on the NHS, which can cost to health visitors.

The youngster will undergo an MRI scan in London before a decision is made on how to treat her. An MRI was also carried out in Malaysia but the results were reportedly inconclusive.

Ainul’s mother Nurul Erwani Zaidi, also 24, claims her daughter’s tumour is continuing to grow despite her having chemotherapy since she was three months. 

The parents add their daughter has become increasingly less active and can no longer move her tiny body. 

Ainul’s tumour is thought to be derived from germ cells, which ordinary develop into sperm and eggs. Germ-cell tumours are therefore most common in the ovaries or testicles.

However, germ cells can occasionally be left behind in other parts of the body when a baby develops in the womb. 

Alternatively, the cancer may start in the ovaries or testicles and spread at a very early stage, with the original tumour either disappearing or being too small to find. 

WHAT IS AN EXTRAGONADAL GERM-CELL TUMOR?

An extragonadal germ-cell tumour occurs when cancer develops from germ cells outside of the ovaries or testicles.

Germ cells ordinarily develop into sperm and eggs. These tumours therefore typically occur in the ovaries or testicles because this is where germ cells are.

However, germ cells can sometimes be left behind in other parts of the body during a baby’s development in the womb.

Alternatively, extragonadal germ-cell tumours may come about when a cancer spreads from the ovaries or testicles at a very early stage, with the original mass disappearing or being too small to find. 

These tumours most often occur in the brain, the back of the abdomen or the area of the chest between the lungs. 

Extragonadal germ-cell tumours are ‘very rare’, with their exact prevalence being unknown.

Treatment depends on the type of tumour a patient has. It may include chemo, radiotherapy, surgery or a combination of the three.

    find out how you center yourself and clear your
    thoughts before writing. I have had difficulty clearing
    my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Cheers!
