A mother whose birthmark exploded whilst she was carrying her son has described how doctors found three deadly tumors hiding behind it.
Sam Davies, a 31-year-old woman from the UK, has lived to tell her tale of a harrowing ordeal she underwent, and it all started with an itchy birthmark. As the Daily Mail reports, that birthmark would go on to explode, and doctors would find three tumors behind it.
The mark was located on the woman’s forehead, and it became itchy whenever she was pregnant. Since she was in the midst of carrying her fifth child, she paid it no mind. The itching increased to the point of pain and pulsing, but doctors couldn’t pinpoint what the trouble was. Then the birthmark exploded.
“There was lots of goo and blood shooting out of my head, all down my face. I was panic-stricken,” she explains.
She was rushed to the hospital, and doctors would discover that the mark was the tip of several tumors, some of which contained cancerous cells. Surgery cleaned that up, and she’s on the road to recovery.
“Now, I’m pain-free and I have a scar where my birthmark once was. But just to be on the safe side, I’m not planning on having any more children – just in case the monster wakes up again,” Davies continued.
