A teenage boy who was attempting to test the length of his penis got a USB cable stuck in his penis after the experiment went horribly awry.
When the knotted wire became trapped, the 15-year-old from London had to undergo an operation to remove it.
Despite the teen’s best efforts, both ends of the cable were left protruding from his manhood.
His family was compelled to take him to the hospital when he urinated blood.
For further treatment, the teen was sent to University College Hospital in London. After the staff at the nameless hospital failed to get it out, he was eventually referred for surgery.
The specialists wrote in Urology Case Reports that when the youngster arrived at the hospital. He requested to be checked without his mother there.
He revealed to hospital staff that he used the cable to try to measure his penis.
To pull the wire out, the doctors had to cut into the region between his genitals and anus (the bulbospongiosus muscle).
Before removing the remaining portions of wire, they were able to draw the knotted section of the cable out from the incision.
He didn’t require any more treatment and was allowed to return home the next day.
“There was no sign of psychological illness,” the specialists claimed. He also adds that “experimentation” was cited as the reason for the insertion.
“This was yet another example of sexual curiosity that led to a difficult urological emergency that was successfully handled with open surgery and without any short-term consequences.”
A follow-up scan was required two weeks later, and the youngster will be monitored in the future.
Putting items in your penis is risky, and you might end up with painful erections, a hole in your bladder, and blood in your urine.
One specialist cautioned that putting anything into the body that isn’t sterile might result in problems.
Dr. Amr Raheem, a consultant andrologist at the private health clinic International Andrology London, stated that instances like these are becoming more prevalent as a result of social media, which allows for the propagation of disinformation.
In an interview with MailOnline, he urged anybody contemplating measuring their penis with a USB not to do so.
