Two-Inch Leech

“Bloodsucking leech pulled from woman’s throat after 3 months

When a woman in the Ha Giang Province of Vietnam went to the doctor complaining about persistent migraines, it turned out that a leech had clamped onto her throat. Apparently it had been living there for three months, unbeknownst to the patient”

The leech has two daughters,

“Give,” “Give.”

There are three things that will not be satisfied,

Four that will not say, “Enough”:

Sheol, and the barren womb,

Earth that is never satisfied with water,

And fire that never says, “Enough.”

(Proverbs 30:15-16)

“Upon further inspection, the woman was diagnosed with a throat tumour that had to be removed.

However, during the surgery the doctors were surprised to find a leech living in the patient’s sinuses.

Surgeons recorded them pulling the leech out. The leech, still alive, writhes as it is placed on a tray.

According to the doctors, if not detected in time, the creature could have attacked the patient’s sinuses.

A leech is a type of segmented worm which has suckers at both ends of its body, one of which contains the mouth and is used to suck blood for the creature to feed on.

Leeches can range in size from minuscule to 20cm (eight inches) or longer when stretched out, and are found all over the world.

Leeches feed on blood by making small cuts in their prey’s skin then covering it in their saliva which numbs the area and increases blood flow.”
