A man has been left with a permanent erection after getting a nose job.

Neven Ciganovic who is obsessed with plastic surgery found himself in agony after an operation to fix his wonky septum left him with a priapism, which is an unwanted, long-lasting and painful erection that is not accompanied by sexual desire.

He said: "I was in Iran for a rhinoplasty for the documentary film that British Channel 4 is filming, covering my life. We did not record the surgery but only the consultation sessions with the doctor. They gave me general anaesthesia and I reacted badly to it."

Priapism happens when blood rushes to the penis and is unable to flow out, and usually lasts several hours. If the condition lasts for more than four hours it is deemed a medical emergency, and can affect a male's chances of being able to get an erection in the future.

Luckily for 45-year-old Neven, he later recovered in hospital in the Serbian capital of Belgrade, but the Croatian native claims he was refused painkillers despite being in agony.

He added to The Sun newspaper: "I reside in Belgrade hospital since Friday. Unfortunately, I do not get analgesics because they do not give them to patients here, so I continue to suffer. I have to be at the hospital for five more days."

Although Neven has now had surgery to relieve his condition, doctors say he won't recover fully for a few months.

A study has revealed people's like or dislike for Marmite is in their DNA.

Whether people love or hate the yeast-based spread is reportedly down to their parents, according to a new study by DNAFit one of the UK's top genetic research centres who have discovered your genes determine whether or not you enjoy the opinion-dividing snack.

DNAFit asked 260 adults to taste a 2g serving of Marmite before filling out a questionnaire noting their reaction to it, and after analysing the DNA of each participant, researchers discovered the make-up of 15 particular single-nucleotide polymorphisms in their genes were linked to taste preference.

Principal investigator behind the project, Thomas Roos, says: "Our research indicates that Marmite taste preference can, in large parts, be attributed to our genetic blueprint, which shows that each of us is born with a tendency to be either a 'lover' or 'hater'."

But it isn't completely down to your genes, as people can also have their taste in food products altered by the environment around them.

Men are the most boring when they reach 39 years of age.

A new study has shown that most men reach their boring peak at almost 40 years of age, as this is when they have completed many of the things which people deem to be exciting tasks.

The research was carried out by home rental site Airbnb, who surveyed 2,000 people in an attempt to work out the optimum age for boredom and excitement.

According to their results, people are most likely to be trekking across the desert, dancing on bar counters or taking up base jumping at the age of 27, and become more dull when they take on more responsibilities after entering their 30s.

Women, however, allegedly reach their optimum age of 'boring' earlier than men, with the survey suggesting they become dull at just 35 years old.

Doctors in China found a patient had an eight centimetre glass cup stuck up his backside.

The married man finally summoned the courage to attended hospital in Guangzhou after suffering from two days of extreme pain.

However, he refused to explain how or why the object was blocking his insides, according to the Shanghaiist.

The patient was in agony as he entered the medical facility at around 2 a.m., and he was quickly taken for an X-ray, which revealed the unlikely scenario to the medical experts.

The medics feared the object could cause potentially serious, long-term health problems for the patient.
