A 28 years old man from Russia went to the doctor after coughing up blood and having chest pain. The Doctors thought he had cancer and performed surgery to remove it. But During surgery, they found that it was actually a “Tree growing inside” him.

Medical staff believe that Mr Sidorkin somehow inhaled a seed, which later sprouted into a small fir tree inside his lung.

‘We were 100 per cent sure,’ said surgeon Vladimir Kamashev from Izhevsk in the Urals. ‘We did X-rays and found what looked exactly like a tumour. I had seen hundreds before, so we decided on surgery.’

Before removing the major part of the man’s lung, the surgeon investigated the tissue taken in a biopsy.

‘I thought I was hallucinating,’ said Dr Kamashev. ‘I asked my assistant to have a look: “Come and see this – we’ve got a fir tree here”.

‘He nodded in shock. I blinked three times as I was sure I was seeing things.’

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.’

The report appeared in popular tabloid Komsomolskaya Gazeta and was picked up by Russian news service Novosti.
