BREWSTER, Mass. (UPI) -- A Massachusetts man said doctors who initially believed him to be suffering from a tumor instead found a pea sprouting in his windpipe.

Ron Sveden, 75, of Brewster, said Cape Cod Hospital doctors used an X-ray to find a spot on his windpipe that they initially believed to be a cancerous tumor, the Boston Herald reported.

"My blood pressure was very low. My oxygen count was very low. I was dehydrated, my left lung collapsed, and I had pneumonia," Sveden said.

"Prior to Memorial Day I was going downhill," Sveden said. "My appetite went away and I was coughing a lot. I just had this listless feeling where I just wanted to lie down. I had no ambition to do anything."

However, Sveden said doctors performed tests and discovered the mass was not a tumor, but a pea sprouting inside him.

Sveden said his health improved once the plant was removed.

"Thankfully it's all over," he said.

"Now I'm just waiting for a call from the Jolly Green Giant," Sveden joked.
