A man from the UK went to the doctor to complain about breathing. Doctors discovered what they thought was a lung tumor. However, they were wrong. The lung tumor turned out to be a toy. how it got there? no one is telling.
A British man is breathing easier after doctors determined that a suspected lung tumor was actually a Playmobil traffic cone.
Doctors at a respiratory clinic in Preston, England, made the discovery after the patient, a 47-year-old handyman, was referred to them because of a nagging cough that had lasted more than a year, according to the BBC.
Doctors did a scan on the patient’s lung and noticed something on it. Because the man was a longtime smoker, they assumed it was a tumor.
The truth made the doctors gasp themselves: During a bronchoscopy, they discovered the tumor was actually a tiny toy traffic cone the patient had received as part of a gift when he turned 7, according to The Guardian
