Some of you might only see things like a person growing a pair of horns on his head in movies and TV shows. Most recent movie about this is 2014’s Horns starring Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe which his character mysteriously grew a pair of devil like horns protruding from his head. You may say things like this won’t happen in real life but after reading is article you might change your mind.

Liang Xiuzhen to have a surgery to remove horn from her head
It is said that the abnormal growth started off as a “black mole” but soon developed into something much bigger. It is set to have the horn removed as it stops her from sleeping.

According to her son, Wang Chaojun:
My mother complained about this mole-like growth on her head that itched all the time. We found ways to cure her itch using traditional Chinese medicine, and left it be.
Two years later the mole gave way to small horn, with a size like of a little finger. But Xiuzhen accidentally “broke” the small horn this February, and it’s in place her current horn began growing rapidly over the past six months.

Her son said:
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 a surgery. If something goes wrong during surgery, it would be terrible.
Doctors in Sichuan diagnosed the so-called unicorn horn as cornu cutanium (cutaneous horn), a keratinous skin tumour that has the appearance of a horn.
