It might be tree cough

The fear still haunts me. Even now, I seldom enjoy oranges. During childhood, someone warned me, if I consumed orange seeds, it would grow and one day turn into a tree. That time I often found seeds sliped towards stomach. Artyom Sidorkin of Russia is the person who had a plant inside his lung. It was believed that it might be some tumour untill the surgery [Pic, Curtsey : Daily Mail].

This news has been appeared in Daily Mail.

"The tree, measuring 5cm, was discovered by Russian doctors when they opened up Artyom Sidorkin, 28, to remove what they thought was a tumour.

They believed the coughing of blood was caused by the tiny pine needles piercing blood capillaries. 'It was very painful. But to be honest I did not feel any foreign object inside me,' said Mr Sidorkin. 'I'm so relieved it's not cancer."
