People with real horns (pics)
As unbelievable as it can seem, there are people who go around carrying horns in their heads. It is believed that these horns are the result of exposure to radiation and that they are cutaneous horns.
They are most of the time benign growths and can be removed by a razor. Some children may be born with horns which are corrected with early surgical intervention.
There are several people registered in China, with cases of cutaneous horns, most common in the elderly. According to the World Journal of Surgical Oncology, cutaneous horns appear in men over 55 and women over 65.
These are some of the known cases of people with horns:
Yuanfan 84, of Ziyuan, China. Yuanfan is the latest case to report with the growth of a horn in his head. Yuanfan horn began growing in 2009 and has reached a length of 3 inches.
“Doctors say they don’t know what caused it, but if they try to take it off it will just come back,” Huang told the press. “I try to hide it beneath a hat, but if it gets much longer it will be sticking out the top.”
Razak from Narasimharajapura town, India. Razak is a retired policeman which since 20 years ago has had horns growing in the back of his head with the appearance of a horn flower. In 2008, Razak lost one of his horns when it fell by itself, but he still has 5 horns that cause him pain every time he bumps his head.
Saleh Talib Saleh
Saleh, Yemen. In 2007, Saleh caught the media attention when he turned 102 years old and it was when he told the Yemen Observer the story of his horn.
Saleh used to have a recurrent dream of horns growing on his head, until at age 78 when a real horn grew up on his head.
Saleh has no idea how the horn began to grow and he has refused to remove his horn which he believes was a gift from Allah. According to doctors from a specialized hospital, Saleh’s horn was caused by multiplying layers of hardened skin on his head.
Zhang, 101, Linlou village, China. Zhang and her family ignored a small lump that started to grow up in the left side of her forehead till it became 2-inch horn.
Later, Zhang exposed to the media her particular condition due to a second horn that was growing up in the right side of her forehead. Zhang refuses to remove her horns.
Ma Zhong Nan
Ma Zhong, 93, China. In 2007, after the doctors told Ma Zhong that they couldn’t help him, he looked for help in the media. Five years before, when Ma Zhong was combing his hair, he accidentally injured his scalp. He paid no attention to the small wound, but soon, a hard substance started coming out of his head. Six months later, Ma Zhong had a 10-cm-long horn on top of his head.
Granny Zhao, 95, Zhanjiang city, China. In 2007, the Yangcheng Evening Post reported that Granny Zhao had a curved horn, like the stalk of a pumpkin, coming out of her forehead. Actually, it wasn’t really a horn, but an overgrown mole shaped like a horn. The old woman, known as Granny Zhao, said it started out as a small mole, but it grew in time. She didn’t suffer any pains, on account of her “horn”, it just slightly affected her vision.
This 69 woman apparently came to a doctor’s office in 2008 with an 8-inch cutaneous horn. The cutaneous horn was surgically removed.
