A woman has accidentally saved her own life when she coughed up an cancerous tumor, the Daily Mail reported.
Claire Osborn, 37, felt a tickle in her throat moments before hacking up a 2cm long heart-shaped lump.
She took the growth to her GP and a biopsy revealed it was metastatic adenocarcinoma – a throat and mouth cancer.
Claire was initially given a 50 percent chance of survival but further tests revealed there was no trace of any other cancer in her entire body.
