Yuck! Teen Has Hairy Eye Tumor Removed! Photos!!!

Filed under: TeensHealth

Hairy Eye Tumor 1

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!

Of course we have the UNCENSORED pics, but be warned! They are pretty graphic! Ch-ch-check 'em out AFTER THE JUMP!

This is a perfect example of what can happen to YOU if you don't wear sunscreen!

The 69-year-old man (above) suffers from dermatoheliosis or photodamaged skin, but only on one side of his face.

Why? It turns out he was a delivery driver for 28 years and only caught rays on the left side of his face through his truck's window.

According to medical experts, the "Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays transmit through window glass, penetrating the epidermis and upper layers of dermis".

With that said: Wearing sunscreen can protect you from all those evil UVA and UVB rays that can cause your skin to thicken, lose it's elasticity, and age quicker!

So next time you're in the sun, make sure you put on sunblock! We wouldn't want you to flaw!
