87 year old woman with a horn on her head


Chinese elderly woman came to a clinic in Sichuan with a unique problem; a horn grew in the center of her head. “Right now it just hurts a lot,” she said. “Sometimes it hurts so much that I wake up in the middle of the night,” she added.

Doctors usually have a tendency to seem indifferent when they come across various medical symptoms, but it is doubtful whether the doctor of Liang Xiuzhen from Sichuan Province, China managed to remain indifferent when she showed him what grew in recent months in the middle of her forehead.  This is a horn which is 12 centimeters long and 5 centimeters wide.

The 87-year-old woman told doctors that eight years ago she had a mole. According to her, at one point she started to put an herbal remedy on this mole.  A few years later this mole was replaced by a tumor which grew to tremendous proportions.  “We went to the hospital but doctors were unable to diagnose the tumor,” said Xiuzhen’s son. He said that the family was prevented from going to the hospital again because his mother, “do not like to go there because she was afraid she could not go home,” he added.
