Man Can't Kick A Cold - Doctors See Something Strange In His X-Ray

A man in China suffered from an ongoing cold that he just couldn't seem to shake. He finally went to the hospital to see what was wrong. Doctors took an X-ray to see what might be the problem and were stunned to see one of his lungs were missing.

Yu Hang, 32, had never had his lung removed, but the X-Ray of his chest showed his left lung was gone. Upon further investigating, doctors found his lung had shriveled up.

Yu was rushed into surgery and doctors suspected that he had a tumor. Surgery revealed something even more startling-- it wasn't a tumor. It was a pen cap.

When doctors told Yu what they found, he immediately recalled his school years when he accidentally swallowed a pen cap while doing homework. He didn't have any problems that he noticed, so he never bothered to get it checked out.

Later, when breathing difficulties arose, Yu didn't connect it with the pen cap. Apparently, the cap had punctured the lung and it shriveled up. The cap was partially blocking the windpipe.

While his left lung will never again function normally, Yu should be able to live with one lung. He might never be much of an athlete, but it doesn't normally affect day to day tasks.
