Man’s skin turns bright yellow after over 30 years of drinking and smoking (photos)
A man’s skin turned bright yellow after decades of heavy drinking and smoking, doctors from the central Chinese city of Huai’an, have revealed.
The 60-year-old man, identified only by his surname Du, was rushed to hospital in Huai’an and doctors found out that he had a giant tumour that caused his skin to turn bright yellow.
Doctors say they discovered two tumours, one of which was located in his pancreas are blocking his bile ducts.
Disturbing photos of Du show his neck and stomach turned a dark shade of yellow. He was also diagnosed with jaundice.
The tumour blocking Du’s bile duct was diagnosed as malignant, and doctors have now asked him to quit the alcohol and smoking.
It is believed biliary tract obstruction is one of the main causes for jaundice, which results in a yellowish or greenish pigmentation of the skin and even of the whites of the eyes.
