Recently, doctors in the UK surgically removed a 14 cm-long “dragon horn” from a man’s lower back. The 140 – year-old patient reported that it had been growing for at least three years.

The doctors determined that the “gigantic” skin growth was a cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) —a type of skin cancer that causes growing, scaly bumps on the top layer of skin.
