It looked like a small horn and he had been cutting it for years. But when it started growing rapidly, he decided to consult a doctor.

The post read, "Doctors found out that it was something called a "cutaneous horn" or a "devil's horn" or an "animal's horn". It's a rare kind of skin growth that looks like an animal's horn. Sometimes, it can be a sign of a skin problem that might become cancer.

These horns are more common in older people, with the highest occurrence seen in those aged between 60 and 70 years. It can look like a hard, yellow-brown thing sticking out of the skin. It affect both men and women equally, although there's a slightly higher chance of the growth being cancerous in men. Additionally, they tend to be more prevalent in people with fairer skin tones.

Nobody knows exactly why they happen, but some people think it could be because of things like radiation.

Since the horn is made of a substance called keratin, doctors can usually just cut it off with a sharp knife. It's a simple procedure and doesn't usually cause any problems.
