19 Of The Worst Human Growths Ever

19 Of The Worst Human Growths Ever

The worst human growths ever documented...

Stories and legends fill history of aliens, big foot, and super-humans. Most times we ignore these stories, and leave it just as that. It is a story. However, if you look into stories and legends you can find that it can often be compared to actual human conditions. Albeit it is often an over-exaggeration, but when you are unable to explain something or lacked of words to convey what you see – legends are helpful tools.

People that are different are often ridiculed and ostracized – if they are lucky. Worse, they are harmed, killed, or tortured. Today modern science is helping us better understand rare conditions. Many can be treated or prevented allowing those who were once isolated, to be apart of society once again. Also, by exploring genetics we can study the full potential of the human body.

Man of these conditions are beyond belief and we have comprised this list to bring to light these rare conditions. Although many will find the photos frightening and unsettling, we think it is important to help bring these conditions and the people that suffer from it to help make more people aware.

    It’s freaking me out! I hope they get cured!

    • Deja

      OMG I want to cry!
      those poor things :o

      • Poor Things?

        Poor things? They’re humans (mostly mongoloid including latino mixes)

  • Bob

    Why are they all asian?


      I agree why are all of them from another country? is it because there are little to no vaccanations over there?

      • ISHI

        there are no existing vaccines for those cases so it’s not a vaccination issue and vaccines are widely used in asia…

        • John Vincent

          Hi All,
          In Asia its all about sanitation and pollution.

    • Jared

      Because 1: lack of treatment in 3rd world countries, and

      2: There’s BILLIONS of Asians, so there is a statistically higher probability that something will go wrong, based on the fact that Asians are the majority ethnic group.

    • Lorna

      I believe these are the problems caused by inbreeding.

      • Donald

        Yeah, and you have no evidence at all to support that claim beyond your own apparent bigotry towards other peoples. Lack of medical care is the probable cause. Most cultures have taboos against inbreeding regardless of your “scientific” reasoning.

    • Vance

      Inbreeding doesn’t usually actually cause physical deformations of this magnitude. Most often, inbreeding will create a perfectly healthy baby, but may result in a terminated pregnancy, or some form of mental retardation– and of course, mild deformations are also possible. Many of these diseases are exacerbated (if not caused) by unsanitary environmental conditions. In many parts of Asia bio-hazard medical waste lies in the streets; radioactive materials are disposed of near drinking water sources, or near farm land; industrial chemicals are leaked directly into the sea, very near the shore, and these are cultures that depend heavily on fish. If you’re concerned about cancer due to the amount of mercury in American fish, look at what these poor people have to deal with.

  • InfernoStar

    The ry phyusical ones like the growths and tumors make me very sad…


    This could also be a result of some of the determinants of health; economics, demographics; many of these individuals lack the financial means to take early medical action. You health mostly depends on where you were born, financial status of your parents/relatives; education and knowledge. Education is so very important;it helps you improve your life and lives of others too.

  • ann

    I am really saddened by seeing these picture. I cry to god to help them survive  , help them recover , help them face the world . God please cure them and help their families to support them and love them with no hesitation

  • Alexander

    God, help them.

    • sittingbytheriver

      if there is a god, and i don’t believe there is, he is the one responsible for their condition in the first place. and don’t go on about man causing evil or satan, if God is truly all-powerful, then he is ALL-responsible as well.

      • Banana_Justice

        Believe what you will, but your logic is immature to say the least. If you don’t believe in God, then there is zero reason for you to cover your bases just in case he does exist. So there’s another internal reason why you make the statements about God. And then, why should God be “ALL-responsible” for your bad decisions? Please at least try to make a logical argument for your positions rather than just throw out thoughts that reflect your frustration – thinking they are somehow on solid ground when they’re not.

      • EmpatheticGirl

        Some tests are greater than others. The greater the test, the greater the reward. Where is justice? Justice – recompense – is in the next life.

      • Aliel The Heretic

        Even if God does exist, logic dictates that in no way can he be more responsible for these malformations than we can blame the parents for.

        Much of the time, radiation from the sun damages cells, which pass on damaged DNA, which eventually leads to this stuff.

        The parent can even sometimes be blamed, as mothers and fathers may work around lead and other harmful chemicals, leading to such things.

        What it sounds like is that you once believed in God, decided to blame him for every bad thing that happens in this world, and then created your own “religious” explanation as to why God does not exist.

      • Friska Streeter

        Just because God is ALL doesn’t mean He/She will make everything perfect. We are humans, we are NOT meant to be perfect, this is earth, this is a place where we supposed to have human experience and learn from it, that includes poverty, suffering, imperfection, death. When parents love their kids, they also let the kids make mistake, experience world on their own, because that is the only way to learn. God makes them this way for a purpose. Maybe they are placed here on earth to bring out the compassion and gratefulness in others, or to learn others not to look at their imperfection, but their souls. Everyone plays a role in this universe, and so these unfortunate people. We are all here together to experience humanity. God exists, you look out in nature, everything is perfectly designed, which means there must be an intelligent designer somewhere. There’s a beginning, so there must be a creator. You are the universe. God is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent. The space between the cells in your body, there’s God, or you and your loved ones, God is there too. The universe resides in you, you are a part of this vast creation of God. I used to be like you too, but after extensively searching for answer, I finally realized just because you can’t comprehend it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. In science, quantum physics is probably the closest answer that can explain universe secret. Can you imagine if we get ALL the answer, our brain will probably melt. It’s like computer malfunction when receives too many data. ^_^

    this is really sad man, to the point I hug my child tighter everyday.

    • Richard Poulin III

      Jenelle, we did a volunteer project at a special needs orphanage with some Westerns who were generous to spend a day teaching and having fun with the children. At the end of the event all of the young adults agreed, “I don’t care if my child is smart, handsome, or successful; but I pray that they are born healthy.”

    Very difficult to watch this but you can see how the human body can change so much.
