Saintispun bengong memikirkannya, bila imej yang keluar hasil imbasan ke atas ketumbuhan pada seorang pesakit seolah-olah rupa hantu. Mungkin agaknya pesakit tu kena "santet" agaknya!!!

Startled scientists spot ghostly face in tumour 

We're used to seeing images of human faces in everything from mountains on Mars to pancake batter. But two scientists were surprised to see such a vision... in a testicular tumour. 

The distressed face with a gaping mouth was spotted in the ultrasound scan of a 45-year-old man who had been suffering from testicular pain. 

It made such an impact on Dr Greg Roberts and Dr Naji Touma from Queen's University in Ontario, that they submitted the startling image to the journal Urology. 

It was accepted in September for that month's picture feature of a unique case. 

Under the title 'The Face of Testicular Pain', the authors wrote: '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 epididymo-orchitis.' 

However, they said after a discussion over whether it could be a sign from a deity, such as 'Min' the Egyptian god of male virility, they concluded it was a 'mere coincidental occurrence rather than a divine proclamation.' 

The doctors measured a raised level of a hormone that usually indicates cancer. The male patient opted to have his testicle removed as this is the only way to diagnose the condition for certain. 

Fortunately for him the lump proved to be benign. 

The image then went viral after it was spotted by The Chronicle of Higher Education based in Washington D.C.
