Bizarre Medical Conditions You’ll Probably Only See in India

Here at First to Know, we report on a lot of bizarre medical conditions and one-of-a-kind issues, so we see a ton of stories originating from all over the world.

However, we’ve noticed that a majority of these stories have recently come out of India. We have no concrete reasoning for this, and we don’t assume it’s a country-specific problem.

From abnormal growths to the world’s longest ectopic pregnancy, here are the most unusual Indian medical conditions, along with the stories of the people who have them.
