He had complained to doctors of having extreme pains in his chest, and had also been coughing up blood.
His doctors suspected Artyom had cancer. That's when they decided to perform the biopsy procedure to make sure.
But they never imagined seeing a small spruce growing inside the lung tissue. One of the surgeons, Vladimir Kamashev, says, "I blinked three times and thought I was seeing things."
Doctors are convinced the man had somehow inhaled a seed, which began to succesfully grow inside his lung.
