Four-inch ‘devil horn’ removed from man’s head

A 74-year-old Indian man just had a 4-inch “devil horn” removed from the top of his skull. Doctors who operated on the man at Bhagyoday Tirth Hospital in the Sagar district of Madhya Predesh, India, say he is now healed from surgery.

According to Dr. Vishal Gajbhiye, the elderly man, Shyam Lal Yadav, a farmer from Rahli village in Madhya Pradesh, bruised his head in 2014 — then noticed a lump.
“Initially, he ignored it as it did not cause any discomfort,” Gajbhiye tells SWNS. At first, he had the “growth cut by the local barber — but when the lump hardened and started growing further, he approached the hospital at Sagar.”
Yadav had developed what experts calls a sebaceous or cutaneous horn, a type of tumor that is often not harmful, though there is “malignant potential,” according to the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology.
