His Stomach Bulges Like A Football Everytime He Coughs, Shocking

He was bullied, accused of shoplifting football just because his stomach was so lumpy.

A pensioner named Glenn Williams, 67, was left with a gigantic bulge. It was because of the complications of bowel cancer surgery.

He almost spent two years suffering from the growth and each time he coughs, his stomach bulged like a football. It was measured around 20 cm by 30 cm. 

A hernia happens when an internal part of the body pushes through a weakness in the muscle or surrounding tissue wall.
