People Can't Handle The Story Of A 6-Inch Roundworm Being Found In Woman's Lip

Emily Reily 22 Apr 2019

Human bodies are wack.

Seriously. Not a single day goes by that I discover a health issue online that I've literally never heard of before.

A woman in Moscow experienced an issue that I could've happily lived my life not knowing about.

She had a huge roundworm removed from her upper lip, and the TV show "The Doctors" showcased it on a recent episode.

We probably don't have to tell you this, but the photos are as gross as you would expect them to be.

There was an actual worm inside of her face.

The woman contracted the worm, which had been living in her face for about two weeks, after a mosquito bite deposited the parasite, according to The Stir.

If You See This, Go See Your Doctor

This woman thought it would be fun to document the worm's migration to different parts of her face, which can be helpful so that if it happens to others, they'll know what to look for.

She probably should have called a doctor sooner.

Honestly, if most anyone suddenly sees these bumps above their eye, they're more likely to get to the doctor ASAP instead of just photographing the scene.

All this time it's inside the woman, the worm was eating whatever it's supposed to eat, and growing.

After the worm settled over the eye, it migrated down to below the eye....

.... and then finally, it set up shop in the woman's upper lip, as evidenced by this hugely swollen section of her mouth.

If you didn't know any better, you would think it's a swollen lip from an accident.

But we know the horrifying, terrible truth.

We know.

The String Cheese Incident

YouTube | The Doctors

A doctor removed the 6-inch worm from the woman's lip using forceps. The resulting worm is pretty long and pretty disgusting.

Makes you think a little differently about mosquito bites, doesn't it?

I'm booking a doctor's appointment right now.

Just in case, you know? I'm really not wanting any random worms hanging out under my skin. Better safe than sorry if you catch my drift.

Moral of the story? Trust your body.

When you see a random bump that you're unsure about, go get it checked out just in case.

Your body is a temple, not a worm hotel.
