teething (or nasal!) problems.
in 50yrs time they'll have nailed it.
i'm assuming the procedure was consensual and not an experiment, so really we should be thanking the lady in question for her pioneering attitude towards an untested procedure, and for helping to advance our knowledge towards a treatment that will ultimately benefit the whole of humanity.

Hopefully it can be easily removed as the growth didn't attach to her spine.

Well I guess we have learned to only take the stem cells from the part of the body that you would like healed. This would suck by the way, I feel bad for her.

If guns kill people then I guess cars drive drunk, spoons make people fat, and pencils misspell words?

I agree with Use your brain. Same cells for same parts. But, trial and error is how we get it right.

Nobody nose. The whole thing smells fishy.

Could be worse, could have grown in her arm pit.

She obviously just had a bad case of runny nose.  It simply ran to her back. Do I have to start solving medical mysteries now?
