(Scroll down for video) An elderly man who had a growth on his head learned that it contained at least 50 insects, doctors in China said.

The 94-year-old man who was identified as Liang, said that the lump had been growing larger over the past few months, but did nothing because it didn’t bother him.

However, he decided to seek medical attention a few days ago, after the lump suddenly burst open and several worms crawled out of it.

Doctors who examined the elderly man, said that the lump started to rot. At least 50 worms were still within the mass when doctors began cleaning it.

Liang said that the only thing he felt is a little itch. However, the doctor who removed the lump and insects said that it is impossible that Liang felt just an itch.

The doctor suspects that Liang hid his pain in order not to scare his family.
