Hull City's Mason Reveals Shocking Scar After Skull Surgery

Hull midfielder Ryan Mason has shown the huge scar he was left with on the side of his head after surgery on a fractured skull following a collision with Chelsea's Gary Cahill last January.

In a Twitter post reflecting on what was a challenging 2017, Mason told fans he is coming back stronger and also shared a picture with his son George, born on December 20, 2017.
"It’s hard to put into words the year I have had," Mason wrote.

"It’s been a physical and mental challenge that I am proud to have overcome, and to end the year holding my son in my arms is a special feeling. Coming back stronger!"
Mason has not played since sustaining the injury at Stamford Bridge on January 22 and has no immediate time-frame for a return.

Back in October, Mason said that he plans to resume his career but that his skull needed more time to heal.
"Physically I'm completely fine," Mason said in an appearance on Sky Sports' The Debate.

"But my skull still needs to do a little bit of healing. It's not fully fused together yet.

"But when that day comes hopefully I'm in the physical condition to go straight back in. 

"Right now I'm just waiting. It's a bit of patience and the club have been great, the chairman's been good. They are fully backing me and hopefully once it's fused together fine there won't be any problems."
