- Percentage Of People Who Have It: Less Than 10%
People who have cutaneous horns were often referred to as devils due to religious groups not grasping scientific phenomenons. This specific condition has been around for centuries, and religious types pounced whenever they saw someone with one or more horns on their body. Referred to as cutaneous horns or cornu cutaneum, the horn or horns a person gets are simply unusual skin tumors.
Basically, these horns can appear pretty much anywhere on a person’s body. They often are seen on the head or face. But they can also come out of the arms or legs too. While most of the horns can be relatively small, there are rare cases where they grow very large. A French woman named Madame Dimanche had a horn that measured out to 10 inches! The good thing is that these horns can be removed today. The way it is done will differ depending on size and how cancerous it is or is not.
