10 Things Found Growing Inside People
These cases range from absolutely horrific to just nature playing tricks, like the case of 36-year-old Sanju Bhagat, who had been living with a protruding belly his entire life. When the belly prevented him from breathing normally, he was rushed to the hospital. Doctors, who were expecting to find a tumor inside his stomach, actually found the mutilated body of Bhagat’s unborn twin, that has been living parasitically inside his brother. It even had limbs and genitalia!
Then there is the case of Ron Sveden, who also experienced shortness of breath and was rushed to the hospital with a collapsed lung. His doctors were also preparing themselves for a tumor extraction, but were relieved to find a foreign body in the shape of a pea sprout! It was assumed that Sveden accidentally inhaled the pea bean, which then sprouted to a half inch plant.
And, of course, the most unbelievable reason why something would be growing inside a human is ignorance, or in the particular case, the lack of ‘sex talk’ between young people and their parents creating a ‘void of information’. A 22-year-old Colombian woman that got hospitalized with abdominal pain was discovered that she had a potato plant growing in her vagina. She has been told by her mother to use a potato as a contraceptive!
Who knew that the human body was so fertile?
