'Playmobil' traffic cone stuck in man's lung for 40 years

This is what happens when you disobey your parents when they tell you not to put things up your nose.

A 47-year-old man was referred to a respiratory clinic after having a cough for over a year. Doctors thought the long time smoker had cancer as an x-ray revealed what looked to be a tumor on his lung.

That wasn't the case. When surgeons removed the mass, it was a Playmobil plastic traffic cone.

The man admitted that when he was a boy, he would sometimes eat the tiny Playmobil toys --- and also inhale them. He's pretty sure he snorted the cone through his nose.

What weird thing did you do as a kid? Eat glue, picked scabs, etc.
