When I first saw this, I swear I thought it was fake. But the horn growing out of 87-year-old Liang Xiuzhen’s head is 100% real.
Liang developed a mole on her head about eight years ago, but until recently, it gave her family no cause for concern. After the mole first appeared, Liang’s family treated it with a local herbal remedy to prevent it from itching. Now they’re wondering if this could have caused her current abnormality, which recently started growing to alarming sizes.
Two years ago, the mole cracked open and a small horn began to grow out of it. The local hospital said they weren’t sure what it was, but they weren’t overly concerned about it as similar growths have been reported in people her age in China. Earlier this year, however, things took a turn for the worse.
And I thought all the unicorns were dead…
