Face on mars, toast, etc. might be OK, but a face in testicular tumor is a little too shocking, Two scientists, G. Gregory Roberts and Naji J. Touma from Ontario’s Queen’s University, were shocked to find a face in a testicular tumour. Check it yourself –
G. Gregory Roberts and Naji J. Touma from Ontario’s Queen’s University discovered the unsettling image of a man with a pained expression on his face while scanning the inflamed testicles of a 45-year-old patient.
The pair wrote in peer-reviewed journal Urology they had considered the possibility of the image being a divine sign.
But after dismissing a theory it could be a gesture from the Egyptian god of male virility Min, the pair decided it was a “mere coincidental occurrence rather than a divine proclamation”.
“The residents and staff alike were amazed to see the outline of a man’s face staring up out of the image, his mouth agape as if the face seen on the ultrasound scan itself was also experiencing severe epididymo-orchitis (inflamed testicles).”
The 45-year-old had the testicle removed. Fortunately the tumour turned out to be benign.
The face seems to be in “pain.”
