    Japanese patient's 'tumour' turns out to be 25-year-old towel

    TOKYO (AFP) - Doctors who carried out surgery on a Japanese man to remove a "tumour" had good news and bad news for him. He did not have cancer -- but the "growth" that had been causing him pain was in fact a 25-year-old surgical towel.

    The patient had been carrying the cloth since 1983, when surgeons at the Asahi General Hospital in Chiba prefecture near Tokyo left it in him after an operation to treat an ulcer, a spokesman for the hospital said.

    The man, now 49, went in to another hospital in late May after suffering abdominal pain................

    I thought I had a tumor once, but I then I read on the internet that it was simply a massive growth on my testicle, so I quit worrying about it.

    I agree. Don't they take x-rays after a surgery to check on things?
