100 year-old woman grows horn

A woman has alarmed her small village in China after growing a 6cm horn on her forehead in less than a year.

Zhang Ruifang, 101, says she is also concerned about the appearance of a second mark on the other side of her forehead.

"We didn’t pay too much attention to it [at first] … but as time went on a horn grew out of her head," said Mrs Zhang’s son Zhang Guozheng.


I didn't know this was possible. I wonder what the horn is made out of. Is this some freak bone growth, or is it keratin or something else? And why did it happen now?

I also wonder if I'll get a wicked set of horns when I'm one hundred.

I hope no one won't consider her cursed or cynical.
I wish I had a comment but I'm speechless.

Oh wow, that's awesome. Im sure she isn't so thrilled, but if I have to live to be 101 I hope I grow horns. Unless it hurts, then maybe not so much.

It's probably keratin gone crazy. Why now, maybe the same reason old people get liver spots?
And why has she clipped or file it off?

Seriously? That is amazingly weird. I also think it may be some kind of disease.

She lives up to 100 year olds but I would imagine her back 2000 years ago she would be stoned to death for being a devil.

Take her to the cross, we'll burn her!

Bth I bet she packs a vicious headbutt.

It looks like a beak protruding from her forehead.

Sprout one more, and advance to the fabled "Oni" state.
