Parents of 11-month-old girl with a balloon-like growth on her head desperately need surgeon who can remove the bizarre mass

The family of a baby girl with a huge growth on her head are desperately trying to find a surgeon to remove the balloon-like lump.

MK Cruz, who is 11 months old, was born with a build-up of fluid on her brain and it has swollen out of control, according to local media reports.

The growth is now bigger than the rest of her head and is affecting the infant's eyesight - but her family have struggled to find a surgeon to do the work.

People in their local community in Manila in the Philippines are helping MK's parents raise money and her mother, Cathleen Chavoso, said: 'My daughter can be saved.'
