This is the gruesome moment doctors removed a massive 2kg hairball from a teenage girl's stomach.
Aakansha Kumari, 16, had secretly been eating her own hair for years - but her parents had no idea anything was wrong until her weight plummeted to just over TWO stone.
She was having problems eating and kept vomiting so doctors did an x-ray which revealed a huge mass taking up more than 80 per cent of her stomach.
They were astonished when they pulled a massive lump of tangled hair from her belly - and diagnosed her with trichophagia - where people compulsively eat their own hair. The photos below are very graphic and can be offensive to some.
