This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
We've def done our share of shaving, plucking, and waxing unwanted hair. But what if there was hair growing out of your eyeball?! Ew!
Well, according to the New England Journal of Medicine, that's just what a teenager in Iran had to deal with, thanks to a rare type of tumor!
Surgeons were able to remove the mass without complications, thank goodness!
According to the report, the limbal dermoid — latin for major grossout — didn't actually cause the young man any pain. He just wanted it removed for "cosmetic reasons."
No pain? What about the symptom of throwing up every time you look in the mirror!
We'd feel bad for the guy, but hey- it's out now! The kid's going to be fine!
