Weird Crazy News: Image of a man in agony seen through Ultrasound

Doctors at a Canadian hospital found a shocking image staring right back at them as they were scanning the testicles of a 45-year-old paraplegic man. The image of one of the testicles, shown above, looks like a man's face grimaced in agony.
"It was very ghoulish, like a man screaming in pain," Dr. Naji Touma of Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario told The Toronto Star. "His mouth was open and it looked like one eye was gouged out."

The image, taken in 2009, was sent to the medical journal "Urology," and was recently published with the headline, "The face of testicular pain: A surprising ultrasound finding."

"The residents and staff alike were amazed to see the outline of a man's face staring up out of the image, his mouth agape as if the face seen on the ultrasound scan itself was also experiencing severe [pain and swelling]," read the entry, as reported by The Daily Mail.

About the only one not amazed by the finding was the patient, who was just happy that the two-inch tumor was benign. The man had the testicle surgically removed so he could receive a firm diagnosis.

"I think the patient was just relieved it wasn't cancer, and once I told him he wasn't particularly interested in the details of the ultrasound," Dr. Touma told The Sun.
