A foreign body in the neck

For five years

Playing can be dangerous. When little David* fell five years ago, he immediately felt a sharp pain in his neck on the right hand side. Nothing abnormal was seen at the local health center and the patient was sent back home. Half a decade went by and David suspected that something was wrong. But what? The day before yesterday, surgeon Dr. Olga Koop explored the thickened neck area and indeed found what she was looking for. She pulled a solid chip of wood the length of a walnut from a deep skin channel. Now the teenager is cured and really happy again. (*name changed)

At this point, the wood shaving penetrated through the skin.
