Man Finds Odd Mark on His Body. When It Grew, He Went to the Doctor and Got an Unnerving Diagnosis

So imagine you go get your appendix removed, go home and think everything is fine, only to find a strange mark on your stomach later… only to find out that the mark is being caused by a spider that burrowed into your body through your appendix scar. It may sound like something out of a horror story, but it’s not.

According to an Australian news outlet, Dylan Thomas woke up to find a bizarre red mark on his stomach. When it grew a few inches, the 21-year-old went to the Bali International Medical Center.

… After some investigating, Thomas said the doctors finally solved the mystery: a spider had burrowed itself inside his body through an appendix scar and had been living under his skin for three days.

“Well after running tests and putting things inside my stomach they finally found out it was a tropical spider that’s been living inside of me for the last 3 days, managed to get it out luckily,” he wrote on Facebook. “Haven’t felt so violated in my life before! Just glad it’s all over.”

It may not have been a life-threatening diagnosis, but most people probably can’t think of something worse than having a spider crawl inside of their body and live there. At least they were able to remove it safely with no harm done!
