Genitals are extremely sensitive parts of a person’s anatomy and any injury there can leave a person in excruciating pain. Recently there have also been reports of people left with side effects after botched surgeries on their private parts.

A 60-year-old man in Lucknow was left with a one inch horn growing from the end of his penis after an operation to repair his urethra. Following this the growth was removed by a specialist but it grew back again and it was bigger than before.

The strange discovery was found to be a penile cutaneous horn which was yellow and brown in colour. Doctors removed it once again and conducted a biopsy to conclude that the growth wasn’t cancerous.

Cutaneous horns are overgrown build-ups of keratin which also forms hair, skin and nails.
