China?s Strangest Stories in 2010

World is full of unique things which vary in each nation and depend on the culture. Coming to China, man with scared tumor, tourism advertisement, old woman with horn and chicken footballers may surprise you.


Chinese man with scary tumor

Huang Chuancai, a 32-year-old man, is the witness to a rare genetic condition in its most terrible form. Chinese doctors say that Huang Chuancai suffers from a disease called neurofibromatosis. More specifically, it can be understood as a genetic disorder of the nervous system that primarily affects the development and growth of neural cell tissues. The disease relates to abnormal growth of neural cell tissues, later results in facial disfigurement. Before the first surgery, Huang suffers from 50 pounds of tumor which makes Huang’s face distorted and nearly unrecognizable as human.


Needless to say, Huang’s case is the most extreme case of such disfigurement in the world today.


In China, the beginning of the year witnesses another patient of neurofibromatosis. The girl luckily got rid of unusual disease with large tumor nose thanks to the donors and help from Zhejiang Province’s province.


Tourism advertisement

In the advertisement of tourism in Hubei Province, China, local men went bare and cooperated to pull boats. The action aimed to highlight the image of town; however, it brought back negative effects instead.


This image is widely spread on September 12, 2010 on the Internet.


Old woman grows horn

101-year-old Chinese woman Zhang Ruifang has a horn in her forehead which stuns her family and fellow villagers. The horn first began growing in 2003 and continued progressively bigger and bigger. The 6cm horn now is taking over the poor woman’s forehead. Doctors can only speculate that grandmother is suffering a hormone imbalance. While the whole family are worrying and saving up money for her surgery, a second mark appears to emerge on the other side of the mother of seven’s forehead.

Originally, she found a football on the way home three months ago and kicked it to the cocks. The cocks were scared at first, but now they play football together every day.


“They know how to break through, slide-tackle, and make a fair charge”, stated the owner.
