Fresno Man Pulls 5 1/2 Foot Tapeworm from his Body

A 5-foot long tapeworm pulls out from a sushi lover's body Sushi lover finds 5ft tapeworm dangling from his rectum and yanks it out himself

A Fresno man who says he eats raw salmon nearly every day took himself to the hospital because he knew something was dreadfully wrong.

He gave it a pull, Banh said, and it kept coming. A Californian man, who had eaten sushi, was taken to the hospital when he discovered a tapeworm "wiggling out" of him during his visit to the toilet, Mail Online reported.

That said, in January 2017, a study published in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's journal Emerging Infectious Diseases noted that wild salmon caught in Alaska's icy waters were found to be infected by a Japanese tapeworm known as Diphyllobothrium nihonkaiense.

Apparently, according to the doctor in the emergency room, the man initially thought his intestines were coming out but was relieved to find that the thing he was pulling out was alive.

Clearly, the sushi lover in question is nothing if not a quick thinker, and so it may not surprise you to learn that he also kept the tapeworm, so he could take it to the hospital.And what happened after that? "He is scared to death that he's got something awful", Banh said. He went to the Community Regional Medical Center, where Dr. Kenny Bahn removed the tapeworm.

Then he began to remove the worm, which started moving.

When it comes to raw fish, however, the best way to kill parasites is freezing. "Truthfully, a lot of times I don't think they have it". Tapeworms can cause abdominal pain, anemia, diarrhea, and loss of appetite, and grow to be much longer than 5-and-a-half feet. The parasites might be found in various sorts of fish that haven't been streak solidified to slaughter the worms.

According to the doctor, the man was using the bathroom when he realised he had what looked like a piece of intestine hanging out of his body. And the CDC warned, "The risk of becoming infected with the Japanese tapeworm parasite is most prevalent when consuming raw or undercooked fish, particularly in dishes such as sushi, sashimi and ceviche".

Most often, a tapeworm infection will go unnoticed. Once the tapeworm moved in his grasp, Banh stated, rather than simply being appalled, the man was likewise mitigated to realize that it wasn't his own insides. A mystery solved for the patient, who quickly swore he would not touch the fish again.
