The fact that strange things can actually live inside the human body sounds like the premise for a number of science fiction movies. Some of these weird stories have also been the inspiration for horror movies, and some are simply seen as urban myths. However, there are real cases of things living in a human body that should never be able to thrive in that environment.
Bugs have been found in the cavities of the body, and insects have often found their way inside of the human body and adapted there. It’s fascinating to know that many of the “hosts” for these awful creatures were still able to stay alive while their bodies were being invaded. Just like in the case of other types of medical phenomena, scientists are not always able to explain why these things happen. Is there a way to stop these unusual things from happening? Are these occurrences more common than we think? We may never have the answers to these questions, but one thing is for sure; The things that can live inside of humans are just as disgusting as they are astounding. Here are 12 horrifying things living inside a human body.

An Australian man by the name of Dylan Maxwell came home from his vacation in Bali, an island in Indonesia. When he got home, he found a red trail from his navel all the way up to his chest. The trail looked a lot like a scar, and of course, he was concerned. He thought he’d been bitten by an insect, and went to the doctor to have it checked out. The doctors informed him that the red scar was actually the trail of a small tropical spider. The insect burrowed itself inside of its body. The spider survived in the man’s body for several days. Creepy, indeed.
