A man who needed treatment for kidney stones found out that he has more kidneys than usual.

A 30-year-old man surnamed Chen from Huangshi, Hubei Province was told by his doctor that he has kidney stones in September, reported people.com.cn.

He was sent to a hospital in Daye to get treatment for the kidney stones, but further examination revealed that he had a few kidneys too many, wrote Global Times Doctors told Chen that he has not two, but four fully functional and healthy kidneys..

“I had no idea I had so many kidneys,” Chen said, according to local media.

Double kidneys occur in approximately 1% of the population, according to PubMed. People born with extra kidneys often won’t even realize it.

Niaz Ahmad, a transplant surgeon at St James’s University Hospital in Leeds, told The Guardian that it’s rare for additional kidneys to be fully formed. “One in a million is probably about right,” Ahmad said to the newspaper.
