Man Dies After Tapeworm Gave Him Cancer

A 41 Years old HIV patient died in Colombia from cancer, he had tumors on the lungs and other organs that contained cell 10 times smaller to normal human cells, doctors dint what it was, they even though the human cells were shrinking and other bizarre explanations, but DNA test shown that the cells are from a tapeworm.

What is weird is that the tumors are not parasite cyst, there are not worms in the tumors, just the cells of the parasite growing by themselves as a cancer, this is the first time something like that have been observed.


Colombian doctors had tried to diagnose the 41-year-old man in 2013.

He had what appeared to be normal tumours, some more than 4 cm across, in his lungs, liver and elsewhere in his body.

But on closer inspection the cancerous cells were clearly not human - they were tiny at just a tenth of the size of a human cell.

Eventually, molecular testing identified high levels of tapeworm DNA in the tumours and the reaction was "complete disbelief" from Dr Muehlenbachs.

The worm tissue in question came from dwarf tapeworm - Hymenolepis nana - a specialism of Dr Peter Olson from the Natural History Museum.

"There is something very special about this species," he told the BBC, "It is able to carry out its whole lifecycle in one host and that is absolutely unique."

Around 90% of the worm's body is given over to reproduction as it spews out thousands of eggs into the gut every day.

Rather than the worm getting cancer, it is thought one of these eggs penetrated the lining of the intestines, mutated and ultimately became cancerous.

Weird, worm cancer in humans
, I'm going to say it, HIV mas made to facilitate the creation of human hybrids, the virus weaken the immune system so it the body cannot reject the alien cells, as this worm/men hybrid shows, he will be the first case ever reported of a hybrid (just partially joking
)

Man told by doctors he has 30 minutes to live after tapeworm found in his brain


A man was told he had only 30 minutes to live by doctors, after a tapeworm was found in his brain.

Mr Ortiz was taken to Queen of the Valley Medical Centre after suffering with the "worst headache" of his life. A brain scan revealed a live tapeworm was living inside his brain causing the pain.

The 26-year-old student was told he only had about 30 minutes to live by doctors and needed immediate surgery to remove the tapeworm.

Ortiz’ neurosurgeon, Dr. Soren Singel said “it was a close call” and Ortiz was lucky he went to hospital when he did.

The surgeons put Ortiz into a coma to perform the surgery. Using a camera, they discovered a sac of larvae from the tapeworm inside the brain.

Yes, things cause cancer, the thing is here the man got the worm cancer, not cancer caused by the worm.

They say it was a "dwarf tapeworm", likely one of its eggs mutated and became cancerous

This story is freaky - this thing "spews" thousands of eggs into the gut every day it said

I could have gone without knowing about brain tapeworms.

I'm going to go hide under a rock now. And probably puke.

I completely disagree with your reply. I understand things cause cancer. Specifically I was explaining that waste from parasites can cause cancer. You said "the man got the worm cancer, not cancer caused by the worm" The quote from your thread states

Rather than the worm getting cancer, it is thought one of these eggs penetrated the lining of the intestines, mutated and ultimately became cancerous.


Clearly he got cancer from the worms.

If he got cancer form the worm the cancer cell would be human cells, it is worm cancer
