Doctors find tooth growing in man's nose

Yongkang, Zhejiang Province, China -- Doctors discovered that a man who visited hospital due to breathing difficulties had a tooth growing in his nostril.

According to Feng Fujia, 21, he has suffered with problems with his nose for the past five years.

However, due to the poor medical facilities in his hometown he was never able to find an answer.

He comments: "Recently the problem gets worse and worse, and my nose is so smelly that my co-workers all stay away from me." Desperate, Feng visited a hospital in Yongkang, eastern China"s Zhejiang Province for help.

X-rays revealed an unusual object in his nostril and when it was removed doctors were shocked to discover it was a tooth. Doctors said quite possibly during Feng"s early dental transitional period he ate something hard which pressed an upper tooth into his nostril.

"It"s like pushing a tree seed into another place and after a long time the seed started to sprout and grow out. As teeth grow very slowly, it only could be discovered years later that it sprouted in the nostril."
