Worms inside Apple

Hi, I was eating a red apple and then I saw it had a couple worms inside it. I am not sure if I ate the worm or not. If I ate the worm in the apple can they multiply or infest in your intestines? what should I do in this situation?

Don't worry.  They just digest.  These are not parasites for humans.
