An 18-year old woman went to the doctor for abdominal pain and a 40-pound weight loss. When the doctor performed a CT scan, they found a mass which turned out to be a 10-pound hairball!
Doctors found a mass there, and when they used a small camera, found that the hairball was taking up nearly her entire stomach.
The patient said that she has a habit of eating her own hair, a condition called trichophagia.
Doctors tried to use small incisions to remove the mass, but then had to go to traditional surgery to make sure the entire hairball was removed.
