To me this photo is as interesting as it is terrifying. Apparently this is a result of osteosarcoma of the cranium, or for us medical laymen, bone cancer of the skull. I can’t imagine how horrific and painful this would be to suffer and die from.
Osteosarcoma is an aggressive malignant neoplasm arising from primitive transformed cells ofmesenchymal origin (and thus a sarcoma) that exhibit osteoblastic differentiation and produce malignantosteoid. It is the most common histological form of primary bone cancer.
