Chinese ‘Unicorn Woman’ Grows Gigantic Horn In Middle Of Her Head

An elderly Chinese villager has been dubbed “the unicorn woman” due to an abnormal growth on her head that looks like a large horn, it’s reported.

Liang Xiuzhen started growing something that resembled a “black mole” on her head around eight years ago, according to her son Wang Chaojun.

The 87-year-old, from Guiyan village in Ziyang City, Sichuan Province, was left stunned when two years ago it gave way to a finger-sized horn-like mass.

Xiuzhen accidentally “broke” that small horn in February - and her current, much larger, horn - which is currently 13cm long -began growing rapidly in its place.

“Now the horn hurts my mother and prevents her from sleeping. It also bleeds from time to time,” said Chaojun.

Doctors diagnosed the so-called unicorn horn as “cornu cutaneum” (cutaneous horn), a keratinous skin tumour that has the appearance of a horn.

Often small and benign, the growth can in some cases be much larger and malignant.

Chaojun said doctors believe they can remove the growth through surgery, but the family has its reservations due to Xiuzhen’s old age and are considering other options.

“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 [during surgery], it would be terrible,” he said.

Only last month another pensioner made headlines after it was revealed she had three bizarre toenail-like growths sprouting from her foot and had appealed for doctors to operate.

The unnamed woman from the town of Wadi Al Dawasir in central Saudi Arabia’s Riyadh Province has reportedly been to several hospitals and clinics, with none of them able to explain what she is suffering from.

It's not uncommon. They can remove the  growths, which are keratin cne crazy  The growths can come back, but they can' remove them as they happen.

It's just sad to see, and the same with Dental Tori (extra jaw bone), it can be removed, but will continue to grow.  Same with a bump, called a blister, inside the mouth.

 I feel really sad that people have to endure these kinds of medical issues. Such a shame.

Wow, 10 views and no comments.  Guess these pics freaked everyone out.  They are bizarre and very sad indeed.

10 views may be guests or search engine bots none of which can posts replies. I think you've posted it in the wrong forum though to be honest, this one 'Who Cares?' is intended more to share birthday messages and congratulations, commiserations etc but all relating to our community and membership. The off-topic (non-Millennium related) forums are  in The Donut Hole...

I posted it in the "Who Cares?" because many of us do care about those who are stricken with things like this, or worse.  The thought of living with something like this is heart-wrenching.  I don't mind if it gets moved to the Donut Hole.

 Who cares?  It'sa question that seems nonchalant, but really it's a serious question.  Who does care?   I'd like to think we all care, here in our  forums.   In India this woman would be revered as a goddess.  But they'd not ease her suffering, because they'd want to keep her as a goddess.  In America, if she were lucky, sh'e have had it taken care of long ago, and taken care of again each time it  came back.  In China, I think she probably spent lots of time shunnedy by all but family.   We should care about the pain of others.
