Doctor finds pea plant growing inside lung

MASSACHUSETT (KSLA) – A doctor finds a pea plant growing inside a Massachusetts man's lung.

The man had been sick for months and was already fighting emphysema when his health took a turn for the worse.

He had actually prepared himself to hear the words cancer and tumor but not a plant growing in his lung. He said he never felt anything growing in his chest, just a lot of coughing.

Doctors suspect he had eaten a pea at some point in the last couple of months and it went down the wrong way, and then began to grow.
