 Most bumps on our faces stay put. Well, not this one! A Russian woman watched perplexed a lump on her face moved from one place to anothr, until she discovered the lump was alive. The woman had a parasitic worm living below her eye. It later moved her eyelid and then to her lip, where the infestation caused some serious swelling. The lump turned out to be a parasitic nematode known as Dirofilaria repens. It typically infests dogs and other carnivores. This patient made a full recovery once the worm was removed surgically. Gross.
