A Tennessee mother has recovering after having a 20-pound cyst removed from her stomach.

Ashley Walden looked like she was 6-months pregnant when she finally decided to seek medical help.

Ovarian cysts are relatively common and rarely get to be the size as the one removed from Walden. However, women are encouraged to talk to a doctor if they believe they have a cyst. 


Walden says she is focused on her recovering and getting back to normal for her children. She says the pain from the abnormally large cyst has prevented her from enjoying time with her children for the last 2 years.
