A teenage boy got a USB cable stuck inside his penis leaving doctors needing to surgically remove it.

The 15-year-old boy was reportedly attempting to measure the inside of his genitals with the cable in a bizarre form of "sexual experimentation" before it knotted, making it impossible to remove.

With the cable forming knots and tangles, the youngster began to see blood appearing in his urine, and eventually his mum rushed him to hospital where he confessed he had deliberately inserted the cable – but not before his bewildered mother had left the room, the Mirror reports.

The bizarre incident was documented in a urology case report in November 2021.

Doctors wrote in the Science Direct report: "The two distal ports of the USB wire were found to be protruding from the external urethral meatus whilst the middle part of the knotted wire remained within the urethra.

"The patient was an otherwise fit and healthy adolescent with no history of mental health disorders."

Doctors couldn't remove the cable with a metal rod as too many knots had formed, meaning the boy had to undergo surgery.

Medical professionals made an incision between the boy's genitals and anus to allow them to access the cable and catheters were then fitted.

Doctors explained: "A longitudinal peno-scrotal incision over the palpable foreign body was made and careful dissection was undertaken through deeper tissues, splitting the bulbospongiosus muscle.

“Both ends of the wire were pulled out successfully through the external urethral meatus."

The teen made a swift recovery and was discharged, and his catheters were removed just a fortnight later – but he will be monitored for long-term damage as inserting foreign objects into the urethra can cause pain while urinating, blood in the urine, painful erections and urine retention.

And it's not just this youngster who has inserted bizarre objects into their urethras – the report names several other objects that have led to hospital admissions, including needles, pins, and even pistachio shells.

The urology doctors added: "Sexual experimentation and gratification, as well as underlying mental disorders, are considered the main causes of retained foreign bodies in the urethra and bladder.

“Depending on the mechanism of insertion, and the size and shape of the object, they can cause delayed complications, mainly recurrent urinary tract infections, urethral strictures or false passages and bladder perforation, which may require major reconstructive procedures to restore the anatomy."
