Woman spits out fruit seed after 28 yrs

   Apr 27, 5:36 pm

Melbourne, Apr 27 (ANI): A Florida woman, who suffered from a persistent cough for 28 years, is breathing easier after finding out that a mass doctors discovered in her lung may actually be a fruit seed she inhaled years ago.

Blanca Riveron was ready to undergo surgery after a scan at the doctor's office detected a dark mass on her lung that physicians feared might be cancer, WTSP-TV reported.

Riveron, 62, shared the bad news with her daughter, who suggested the mass might be the seed of a small fruit, called a nispero, that she inhaled nearly three decades earlier, the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as saying.

"I told my daughter, 'No, it can't be it. It's been 28 years - I mean it can't be it''," Riveron, who had forgotten all about inhaling the seed, said.

Yet she soon coughed up the seed that had apparently been lodged in her lung since 1984.

With the seed gone, Riveron no longer suffers from coughing fits, she revealed.

She said ridding her body of the seed has given her a new lease on life, but she intends on having her lung s screened by a doctor next month. (ANI)
