man who had been suffering from nosebleeds for more than 10 days was recently horrified to find out just what had been causing him all of this pain and suffering.
The 51-year-old man finally decided to go to the hospital in Beihai, Guangxi after his wife claimed to have seen something peek out of his nostril before disappearing back up his nose. At the hospital, a doctor determined that there was indeed something foreign living in the man’s right nasal cavity.
In some truly stomach-turning footage, the doctor is seen using forceps to widen the nostril and reaching in with tweezers, plucking out a monster of a leech.
The man’s expression upon seeing the creature really says it all. If you dare, you can watch video of the operation on YouTube:

So how does such a thing get to be up someone’s nose? Well, the man explained that he believed the leech entered when he was drinking “fresh” mountain spring water while he was working in rural Yunnan province last week. At the time of its arrival, the parasite was likely only as big as a hair, but it had had quite a lot to drink since then.
