Spider inside woman's ear
(Scroll down for video) A woman who suffered from a severe itch inside her ear shocked doctors when it was discovered that a living spider was the reason behind her itch, according to reports in the news media.

Doctors in China performed a spiderectomy on the woman who had a spider living inside her ear for several days.

Photos taken at the Central Hospital of Changsha show the creepy spider inside the ear before being removed.

The central Changsha woman was now understandably complaining to doctors about an itchy left ear, according to reports.

Doctors determined that the spider was probably living in the ear canal of the woman for up to five days. They believe it got into her house as it was being renovated.

Doctors filled her ear with saline hoping it falls off without causing the spider to bite the woman or dig itself in deeper.

The plan worked and the woman reportedly wept with gratitude.
