Pioneering tumour op on baby in the womb
Surgeons have removed a tumour from the mouth of a foetus, in what has been described as a "world first" procedure.
After a scan at 17 weeks, mother Tammy Gonzalez said she "could see a bubble" coming out of her baby's mouth.
Doctors said it was a very rare tumour called an oral teratoma and there was little chance her daughter would survive.
After the pioneering operation, baby Leyna was born five months later.
