Woman’s Birthmark Explodes - Doctors Realize It’s A Life Or Death Situation

31-year-old UK mom, Sam Davies, noticed her forehead birthmark would become itchy and raised when she was pregnant, and the birthmark eventually became a sure sign she was carrying a child.

However, with Davies fifth pregnancy, her birthmark began to swell and pulse, and she was eventually rushed to the hospital when it split open her forehead.

Doctors determined that the birthmark was the tip of several tumors, and undertook emergency surgery to remove the masses.

Davies, from Skelmersdale, Lancashire, had been dealing with the unsightly birthmark on her forehead since she was a little girl, and had no idea it could be dangerous.

She commented: “The kids at school used to call me the unicorn. I managed to cover it with my fringe and I just learned to live with it. It was like a little red dot.”

She was married in 2011, and her and her husband had four daughters, Kati, Amy, Lorna, and Kayla.

Davies remarked: “When I was pregnant with my first daughter, the birth-mark started to grow a little, it became itchy and it grew. It was more of a growth than a mark and I hated it.”

When Kati was born in late 2005, Sam had the outer part of the growth cut off.

Then she became pregnant with her second daughter, Amy. The birthmark was itchy, but it did not grow any larger.

Davies then had her two youngest daughters.

She pointed out: “The birthmark really bothered me, each time I fell pregnant. In fact, the moment it began to itch, I knew I was pregnant. It was like an inbuilt pregnancy test. With each of my daughters, it would itch and irritate, but it didn't grow beyond that.”

Davies noted: “It was horrible. It was pulsing all the time, getting very sore and angry. My consultant was really worried about it.”

When the couple found out Sam was carrying a boy, they were thrilled. But her joy was limited by her worry over her birthmark, which was growing, and popped out of her forehead during her 32nd week of pregnancy.

Davies said: “There was lots of goo and blood shooting out of my head, all down my face. I was panic-stricken.”

She was taken to the hospital by ambulance where doctors struggled to stop the bleeding and had to have surgery to stitch up her forehead. The rest of her pregnancy was problematic, however, as she kept bleeding.

Sam had major surgery in late 2014 to remove three benign tumors, but a few cancerous cells were found in one of the tumors.

Sam is starting to recover after a year of treatment. She is on the list for reconstructive surgery, but is otherwise healthy and cancer free.
