35-year old Chinese man was wheeled into the emergency room in the Liaoning province on June 20 with 15 needles inserted into his genitals. It was only recently that he started getting the repercussion.
He had been inserting the needles into his penis for over a year. He only decided to seek medical attention when he experienced acute pain and bleeding after urination. The man was admitted at the general hospital in the Shenyang Military Region, China.
