- California teen dad suspected of biting off crying baby's nose
By Laila Kearney San Francisco (Reuters) - A northern California teen-age father has been arrested on suspicion of biting off the tip of his infant son's nose in a fit of rage over the child's crying, police said on Friday. Joshua Cooper, 18, was booked into jail on Thursday on suspicion of child cruelty and aggravated mayhem over the incident in the city of Fairfield, northeast of San Francisco. Police were alerted to the incident following a "hysterical" call from the newborn boy's 17-year-old mother on Thursday, and first responders found the baby bleeding from his nose, Fairfield police spokesman Troy Oviatt said in a press release. "One third of the child's nose had been severed off," Oviatt said, adding that the child was rushed to a local hospital and later transferred to the Children's Hospital and Research Center in Oakland due to the severity of his injuries.

A woman who complained of a rapidly expanding waistline was surprised to discover an unusual cause of her girth: an 88-lb., mucus-filled ovarian tumor. Mucus-filled ovarian cysts, known as mucinous cystadenomas, are fairly common, and most often strike women ages 30 to 50, said Dr. Jonathan Herman, an obstetric surgeon at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, N.Y., who was not involved in the woman's case. "When you cut it open, mucus just comes pouring out," Herman told Live Science. "Mucus is very heavy, so they grow to a large size."
