俄羅斯一名28歲男子,懷疑自己罹患肺癌而接受手術治療,沒想到醫師開刀後才發現,原來男子胸部疼痛並不是因為腫瘤,而是肺裡長了一株5公分的小樹,連植物學家都大呼不可思議。

胸部疼痛、懷疑肺部長了東西的人,先不要太快對自己的病情下定論,因為除了腫瘤之外,還有另一種可能。

肺部出現一株小樹的,就是一名28歲的俄羅斯男子,日前他因為胸部劇烈疼痛、有咳血現象,求診接受X光檢驗後,研判應該是肺部出現腫瘤,決定動手術切除,沒想到醫生將肺部切開來一看,赫然發現所謂的腫瘤,竟然是一株長達5公分的小樹,而且還是俗稱耶誕樹的「樅樹」。

醫師研判,病人應該是把種子吸到肺裡,才會慢慢長成小樅樹,不過看在植物學家的眼裡,這種說法實在太扯,專家再怎麼懷疑,肺裡出現小樹卻是不爭的事實,現在醫師已經針葉嵌入的部份肺部切除,小樅樹也拿去實驗室檢驗,看看有沒有辦法查出,這棵樹到底是怎麼來的。(民視新聞林聖卿綜合報導)

聯合:俄男切腫瘤 赫見肺裡長耶誕樹

28歲的俄羅斯男子希鐸金(Artyom Sidorkin)日前胸部劇痛,出現咳血症狀。醫師診斷認為罹患肺癌,必須進行腫瘤切除手術。想不到,從希鐸金肺中取出的竟是一棵發育良好的5公分樅樹。

樅樹是可用來當作耶誕樹的樹種,其針狀葉子方便用來吊掛飾物。不過醫療人員相信,就是因為樅樹的針狀樹葉在希鐸金體內生長,才刺傷了他的血管,導致他胸部劇痛咳血。

肺部長出小樹聽來不可思議,希鐸金的醫生卡瑪雪夫認為,應該是希鐸金不知何故吸入了樅樹種子,導致種子在他肺部發芽生長。

回憶起希鐸金就診之初,烏拉爾區首府伊熱夫斯克的卡瑪雪夫表示,「我們做了X光檢查,發現看來和腫瘤完全相同的東西。我們百分之百確定。這種案例我之前見過數百遍了,所以我們決定動手術。」

而就在卡瑪雪夫進行術前切片檢查時,5公分的小樹活生生地出現在他眼前。卡瑪雪夫說,「我想我眼花了,我瞇著眼睛看了三遍。我實在不敢相信,叫一旁的助理也來看看這是不是一棵樹,他驚訝的點頭。」

俄羅斯國營新聞社引述共青團日報的報導說,肺裡長樹連希鐸金本人也嚇了一跳,他表示,「那很痛,但坦白說,我不覺得有任何異物在我的體內」,不過「知道那不是癌細胞真讓我鬆了一口氣」。目前,被針葉嵌入的部分肺部已動手術成功移除。

Daily Mail: Shocked Russian surgeons open up man who thought he had a tumour... to find a FIR TREE inside his lung

A fir tree has been found growing inside a man's lung by surgeons who were operating on him for suspected cancer.

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

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

The patient had complained of extreme pain in his chest and had been coughing up blood. Doctors were convinced he had cancer.

'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.
