Florida woman with possible lung cancer thinks it was just the fruit pit she swallowed

Florida woman with possible lung cancer thinks it was just the fruit pit she swallowed

Doctors noticed a dark spot on her lung after she coughed up blood, according to a report on WTSP.com.

Blanca Riveron told a daughter who lives in Cuba, who reminded her 62-year-old mom about eating a piece of loquat-like fruit called nispero three decades ago.

"I told my daughter no, it can't be it. It's been 28 years — I mean it can't be it," Riveron said.

A few weeks later, after a second endoscopy, the Seminole Heights woman coughed out a pit.

Now, the nagging coughing she has had for years has all but disappeared.
