Surgeons removed a massive 10-pound hairball from the stomach of an 18-year-old girl suffering from a psychological condition in which she ate her own hair, according to a report in this week's edition of the New England Journal of Medicine.

The teen went to her doctor after complaining of stomach pains and vomiting. She had also lost 40 pounds over a five-month period, according to a UPI report.

May have been cheaper to have given her a jar of vasolene. It sure got hairballs out of my cats. All kidding aside, I hope she never eats her hair again. That was gross, and it had to be painful.
