After losing his nose to cancer, scientists are reportedly helping a 56-year-old man grow a new one.

According to reports, scientists at the University College London are growing two noses, one which will be kept at the lab while the other will be implanted in the patients arm.

"We've got two noses growing, just in case someone drops one," Professor Alex Seifalian told the Belfast Telegraph.

"We can make the nose, but we can't make the skin," the professor said.

According to Fox News, the scientists create the nose from the mould of the unidentified man's original nose, which had been eaten away by the cancer.

"His nose was a little bit bent to the left and we asked if he wanted it straight but he said no, he wanted it exactly the same," Seifalian told Daily Mail.

After 3 months, doctors will transfer the new nose onto the patients face, nostrils will then be open and epithelial cells will be introduced.
