Above left is 62-year-old Bianca Riveron's lung x-ray showing a block spot that physicians told her was likely cancer. For decades, she had suffered from a constant cough and difficulty breathing. A few months ago, she coughed up blood and the doctors noticed the dark mass in her lung. But after a second endoscopy, Riveron coughed up the "tumor." Best guess is that it was the pit of a nispero fruit that Riveron inhaled nearly thirty years ago. "Lung ''cancer'' may have been fruit pit from 1984" (WTSP)
