The following 2 pictures show why you don't want to wear a ring in war time.  This man jump off the back of a duec and a half, his ring got caught ripping his finger off.  Even though we had his finger, we could not put if back on, there was too much damage to the bones and nervers.

This man came to us with a growth an his neck.  It started about 10 years earlier as a small lump, and grew to the size shown.  He came to us because the growth had gotton so big that it began to close off his airway and he was having trouble breathing.  As shown, we removed the growth, dissected it, and found that it was mainly fatty deposits.  How it got so big, we're not sure.
