Freaky Friday-Tree Grows In Human Lung

It never ceases to amaze how when the end of the week comes, something always seems to pop up that will make my freaky Friday segment awesome.

So, basically, a Russian man complained of having pain in his lungs and coughing up blood. The Dr.'s suspected cancer from the scan so they performed surgery. When the Dr. went in, he took a double and then a triple take! The man had a 5 cm long tree growing inside his lung.

The Dr.'s believe that the man had previously inhaled the seed and it was able to grow inside the lung. It got big enough to touch the man's capillaries and cause severe pain.

Poor guy! OUCH!
