87-year-old Liang Xiuzhen needs surgery to remove a large horn-like growth from her skull.

I hope you got over your childhood unicorn obsession, because if you were still into them now, this picture would ruin them for you forever. Of course, what you're seeing isn't actually a horn – it's a "cornu cutaneum," a rare form of keratinous skin tumor.

According to the Mirror, Liang Xiuzhen first noticed a small black mole on her head seven or eight years ago. She complained about it itching to her son, who treated it with traditional Chinese medicine until the itching stopped. But the growth didn't go away. In fact, two years ago it grew into a small horn the size of a pinky finger.
