Doctors Believed 11-Year-Old Was Pregnant, Until They Discovered The Truth About Her Bump

Pregnancy in preteens is incredibly rare. The average girl begins menstruating around the age of 12, but for some girls, puberty can happen earlier and this can lead to pregnancies - the youngest of which in history happened to a five-year-old who went through early onset puberty.

But for a "pregnant" 11-year-old in Australia, the cause of her baby bump was a lot more sinister.

Eleven-year-old Cherish-Rose Lavelle's mom knew that something was wrong when she suddenly began to lose weight. Like any concerned parent, she took her to a doctor who, after a quick examination, immediately transferred her to Hervey Bay Hospital in Brisbane by plane.

Even though Cherish-Rose had been losing weight, one part of her body was growing - her stomach. Despite her young age, this caused doctors to speculate about whether or not she could be pregnant, however, a number of tests revealed soon the shocking truth.

The mass growing on Cherish-Rose's stomach was not caused by a baby, but by a colossal 10kg ovarian tumor.
