A man in China had a leech in his nose for 5 years!!!

A man who was suffering from nose bleeding for several years is feeling a lot better since doctors extracted from his nose a 10-inch leech that had been living there for five years, reports a daily from South China.

According to the Canton Daily, as quoted by the China Daily, the 73-year-old man, called Fu, a bare-foot doctor in a village in the South, decided to consult a doctor after his nose kept bleeding for 10 consecutive days.

Fu thinks the leech got into his nose about five years ago, the time when his hemorrhagic symptoms and nasal congestions started, probably at a moment when he was drinking some spring water in the mountains as he was collecting herbs.
