Shocking photos show a four-year-old boy in China who was born with a tongue swelled to three times its normal size because of a massive tumour.

Little Teng was diagnosed with lymphangioma, a rare but benign cyst shortly after his birth, which makes it incredible difficult for the poor youngster to eat or speak.

Hopefully the little one’s struggles won’t last much longer, however.

Teng has been waiting for years for a life changing operation to shrink his tongue but, because he lives in a remote village, it has proven difficult.

But the little one was photographed with his family waiting for treatment in a hospital in Nanning in south China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on Saturday, which is a positive sign for his medical future.
