7 Horrifying Things Doctors Have Pulled Out Of Human Bodies




  • Li Fuyan had suffered with headaches, bad breath, breathing problems, and swallowing for years and could not figure out the reason. ​​ When he finally decided to visit a doctor in his native southern China, they found a​​ four-inch blade in his head. ​​ Four years previous, he had attempted to stop a robber, and was stabbed in the throat in the ensuing scuffle. ​​ Fuyan never noticed that the blade had actually entered his head. ​​ 



  • John Manley had been suffering from a cough and breathing problems for months. He explained to doctors​​ that​​ he had even passed out in public​​ due to his coughing fits. ​​ Suspecting lung cancer, doctors ordered an x-ray of his chest. The scan showed​​ a piece of plastic fork​​ from Wendy's lodged in his lung.




  • A woman complaining of severe pains in her pelvic region. ​​ Fearing she may have an infection, doctors performed an exam, and found a​​ rolled up poster of Donny Osmond​​ inside her. ​​ 



  • Dante Autullo​​ was​​ carrying out some building work when​​ he accidentally discharged​​ a nail​​ gun and​​ fired a nail straight at his head. With no​​ visible​​ wound,​​ they joked about close calls and continued their work. But after 36 hours he was suffering from severe headaches and so visited hospital. Doctors found a 3-inch nail lodged in his brain.



  • Doctors found a​​ rock-solid object​​ inside the​​ anus​​ of a 27-year-old. The unemployed man​​ had​​ injected liquid adhesive into his rectum using a​​ glue gun. ​​ The epoxy substance​​ hardened and became fixed, according to the American Journal of Forensic Medicine.




  • Doctors in India discovered a living cockroach in a woman's skull after she complained of a "crawling sensation" inside her head.​​ According to news reports, the cockroach entered the woman's nose as she slept and bore a path underneath her skin up to her skull. ​​​​ The woman said she could feel a weird burning sensation and had to wait until the morning to go see the doctor. The cockroach was alive and "didn't want to come out," according to the doctors. 




  • A​​ 63-year-old​​ woman​​ was sitting down to a meal of​​ partially cooked squid in South Korea when she felt a​​ "pricking and foreign-body sensation" in her mouth.​​ ​​ Squid semen had shot into her mouth,​​ impregnating the mucous membranes​​ of her tongue, cheek, and gums. Doctors later removed the "twelve small, white spindle-shaped, bug-like organisms" called spermatophores and also identified a sperm sack.
