UPI – A British man who feared he was going deaf used a home endoscope kit and discovered a piece of an earbud had been stuck in his ear for five years.
Wallace Lee of Weymouth, Dorset, said he had been experiencing hearing loss for the past few years, and ended up buying a home endoscope kit to see if he could identify the issue.
The tiny camera alerted him to a small white object inside his ear.
“Five years ago I bought these little earplugs that you can put different attachments in,” Lee told the BBC.
“One of these little attachments had lodged in there and it had been in there ever since.”
Lee visited an ear, nose and throat surgeon, who was able to remove the offending object.
