For 48 years, a Chinese woman had a bullet lodged in head, and she was apparently unaware about it.
She has finally got it removed by doctors, News.com.au reported.
The 62-year-old woman, identified in local media only by her surname Zhao, had a bullet 2.5cm long and 0.5cm in diameter extracted from her head.
She had gone to the doctors complaining about a chronic stuffy nose, headaches and swollen lymph nodes that had bothered her for 10 years.
The question of how she went 48 years without knowing about the bullet resulted in conflicting media reports.
According to Want China Times, Zhao said she was hit on her right temple when she was 14 years-old. At the time she thought it was a stone.
But the Shanghaiist reported the woman as saying she had been hit by a stray bullet as a girl, but only felt minor pain and decided she would live with it.
