14 year abacus beads in ear
Yu Ming, a 24-year-old (pseudonym), dug his ears with an ear spoon and found that there seemed to be something hard in his right ear. After he went to the Department of Otolaryngology, head and neck surgery of Changsha Central Hospital Affiliated to Nanhua University, the doctor took out an abacus bead hidden in his right ear. Yu Ming recalled that the abacus bead should have been “hidden” in the ear canal for 14 years.
On the night of January 2, Yu Ming (pseudonym), 24, pulled out his ears with an ear spoon after taking a bath at home. He found that there seemed to be something hard in his right ear that could not be pulled out. He asked his family to help him look at it and found that a dark yellow hard object was faintly visible in his ear.
In the morning of the next day, Yu Ming came to the outpatient department of Otolaryngology, head and neck surgery of Changsha Central Hospital Affiliated to Nanhua University. According to Yu Ming’s self-report and preliminary examination of his right ear, the doctor suggested that Yu Ming should have further otoscopy examination to make sure the hard object was removed.
Zhou Fang, head of Otolaryngology and neck surgery of Changsha Central Hospital Affiliated to Nanhua University, said that according to the image seen under otoscope, doctors found a dark yellow round foreign body in the right deep of the right external auditory meatus, and there was yellow brown cylindrical scab adhesion around the foreign body, showing obvious inflammation.
