A MAN who was feared to have cancer actually had a toy traffic cone stuck in his lung 40 years after he inhaled it.

Scans revealed a mass on his lung that doctors suspected to be a cancerous tumor.

Paul Baxter, 47, went to the doctor after he began to cough up yellow mucus.

The tumour was a "long lost Playmobil traffic cone" that the man had received as a birthday present when he was seven years old. But during a bronchoscopy, they didn't detect any signs of cancer.

The unique case was detailed in the BMJ Case Reports journal, which explained why a toy ended up inside Baxter's lungs.

"He recalled being given this Playmobil set for his seventh birthday and believes he aspirated the toy traffic cone soon after".

While there is a medical explanation for how the man's lung was able to accommodate a plastic toy for four decades, Denny does concede in the report that "a case in which the onset of symptoms occurs so long after initial aspiration is unheard of".
