Lemon seed removed from woman’s ear

By Staff

Saudi doctors successfully removed a lemon seed stuck inside a woman’s ear for nearly two months, ending fears that the seed could have sprouted, a newspaper in the Gulf kingdom reported on Thursday.

The woman had suffered severe pain in the ear before she decided to visit the hospital in the western Red Sea port of Jeddah, Sabq said.

“Doctors decided to perform a surgery after spotting the seed deep inside the ear…it was successfully removed after nearly two months of suffering by the patient,” the paper said, quoting surgeons.

“The seed could have grown and generated branches but the wax in the woman’s ear has prevented fluids from reaching the seed.”
