(Scroll down for video) A man who was trying to cut out his painful hemorrhoids, was rushed to a hospital after the knife got stuck in his behind, doctors in China said.

The 54-year-old man identified as Yan of Hangzhou, was found bleeding on a park bench in Hangzhou.

He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he told doctors that he had been suffering from hemorrhoids for 20 years. He complained that the pain gets so strong that he feels like cutting them out on his own with a knife.

On Wednesday, Yan grabbed a 6-inch-long knife and stuck it into his behind, trying to remove the hemorrhoids on his own.

The doctors who treated Yan, said that it was difficult to remove the knife from his behind because it had an edged blade.

After removing the knife, surgeons were unable to find any sign of hemorrhoids. Yan’s friend said that he suffers from minor mental health problems.
