An 87 year old woman is finally set to have her unnatural growth removed from her head.
Liang Xiuzhen, who lives in Guiyan village in Ziyang City, in south-west China’s started growth started out as a mole like growth approximately 8 years ago. Over the years it has continued to grow into the strange looking mass that is about 13cm in length.
About 2 years ago the mole grew into a small horn about the size of a finger. When she broke it last February though it rapidly grew back much bigger than before to become the size it is now.
The horn causes her pain all the time, interfering with her sleep and bleeds from time to time. (Hmmm…I wonder if magical powers aren’t the upside though) The doctors believe they can remove it but the family has reservations about an operation because of her age.
