A man in Vietnam's Central Highlands had a 6.5-cm long toothpick removed from his duodenum after suffering abdominal pain for two months.


Hoang Van Quang, 59, of Dak Lak Province, said he began to feel pain of different levels in his right abdomen last November.


However, he assumed that the pain might have been caused by a ureteral stone, for which he was being treated and doctors had already set a date to perform surgery to remove the stone. As a result, Quang did not see a doctor to see what was causing the pain.
