Large Horn Grows on an Elderly Woman
Take a look at these photos. Medical Doctors in Sichuan (a province in southwest China) recently diagnosed an 87 year old Chinese woman who had a large horn like growth extruding from her head with a condition known as “cornu cutaneum” or “Cutaneous horns”. Seven years ago, Liang Xiuzhen noticed something on her heard which looked like a black mole at the time, but didn’t think anything of it. Two years later, it turned into something much more and she began to have cause for concern.
The woman’s son thought that Chinese medicine would have cured the problem, but unfortunately, that didn’t work.
Her son stated, “Now the horn hurts my mother and prevents her from sleeping. It also bleeds from time to time.”
Now measuring just over five inches, the elderly woman’s family thinks that the surgical procedure to remove it may not be the best option at this point due to her age.
The woman’s son added, “My mother is old, and the horn is on her head, which is a very sensitive area. I’m not confident in the idea of surgery. If something goes wrong, it would be terrible.”
Now the doctors are seeking alternative options to get rid of it for good.
