Surgeons Remove Tree Growing In Man’s Lung

lungWhen 28-year-old Russian man Artyom Sidorkin presented with extreme chest pain and hemoptysis (coughing up blood), doctors feared that their patient had cancer. What they were to find when they performed surgery was enough to make surgeon Vladimir Kamashev question what he was seeing.

Doctors found a five-centimeter tree, a spruce, growing inside Sidorkin’s lung. While in extreme pain, Sidorkin stated that he was not aware of the presence of any foreign body.

The medical team theorize that Sidorkin somehow inhaled the seed, which then sprouted inside his lung. [Metro; Image]
