Face Discovered in Testicular Tumor

In 2011, Canadian doctors at Queen’s University were shocked when they discovered a bizarre ultrasound that shows the testicle of a man that was complaining of severe pain. After examination of the image, it became clear that a human face can be identified near the man’s testicle. You can see a large mouth, noise, and two eyes in the image. The face seems to be in distress. Dr. Naji Touma, a professor at Queen’s University Medical School was quoted as saying “The image was very ghoulish, like a man screaming in pain. His mouth was open and it looked like one eye was gouged out.”




The ultrasound shocked medical professionals, and a brief debate ensued about whether the image could be a sign from a deity (perhaps Min, the Egyptian God of male virility). However, the consensus ruled that the shape was a mere coincidental occurrence rather than a divine proclamation. The case has been identified as an example of pareidolia, which is a psychological phenomenon that occurs when people perceive a vague and random stimulus (often a face) as being significant. The ultrasound was sent to the journal Urology, and in 2011 an article was published under the tongue-in-cheek headline: “The face of testicular pain: A surprising ultrasound finding.” As for the patient, the 2-inch (5.1 cm) growth was diagnosed as a benign tumor, the result of an infection, and the testicle was removed.


This was just too crazy not to share with the ATS community. I tried searching for it but I couldn't find it here. How freaked out would you be if you saw that in an ultrasound staring back at you?

Seriously. I think I would find a good urologist and an even better preist.

To me this:

Is the scariest part in the whole story.


The fact that people in these professions and level of education would even contemplate the idea in the likes of "Jesus shows up in a grilled cheese sandwich" and that the word pareidolia does not exist in their vocabulary is a lot more scarier then anything else in this story.

I think it was probably a debate done in jest. I don't think they seriously believed it possible and then had a rational debate ending when they decided it wasn't.
