Melbourne Doctors from Germany have removed a pencil from an man’s head after it got stuck there 15 years back.

According to Aachen University Hospital, the 24-year-old man from Afghanistan started seeking for help in 2011, after suffering from headaches, constant colds and worsening vision in one eye for years, News.com.au reported.
