Woman Really Does Cough Up A Lung

Next time you have a terrible cough, remember to worry about accidentally shifting your organs around. Though "coughing up" a lung isn't possible, according to a case report in the New England Journal of Medicine, a woman with asthma did manage to get a bit of her lung caught in her ribs after coughing especially hard for two weeks. There have also been rare cases of people rupturing their spleens or popping their eyeballs out, so remember to cough with caution.
