Thank you for writing to us.
You should be worried especially if the foreign object is big, then it can block the airways and cause problems. If the object is small and sharp it can damage the airways. I recommend that you see a Doctor to get the object removed.
The Doctor may perform a bronchoscopy to remove the object.
Hope this helps you.
