This truly grim video has captured the moment a dermatologist cuts a huge ‘horn-like’ cyst cut out of a man’s head.
Gag reflexes at the ready guys, if you’re squeamish you better look away now as we welcome our old friend and ‘pimple porn’ queen Dr Sandra Lee back with another gruesome extraction. After making the incision, a lump of solidified pus is pulled out of the patient’s scalp which is so big that it required stitches to sew the hole back together.
Dr Lee told Mirror.co.uk:
This particular cyst was interesting because it started to overgrow the space there on his scalp and started to protrude upward creating a noticeable bump. When I ‘popped’ it out, it was growing in a horn-like shape, as if it was pushing its way upwards.
If you’re interested, this type of cyst is known as a pilar cyst or a trichilemmal cyst. In 90 per cent of cases they appear on a person’s scalp and, apart from being uncomfortable, are harmless, only being removed for cosmetic reasons.
Dr Lee is a dermatologist at the Skin Physicians & Surgeons practice in Upland, California and she admits she finds the pimple popping procedures very fascinating. She has her own YouTube channel under the name Dr Pimple Popper and regularly uploads her stomach churning videos for others to ‘enjoy’.
“I pop these things, and yeah they kind of make me feel good, they’re satisfying, but it’s not like I seek them out,” she told racked.com.
Seriously, if you’re squeamish do not watch this!
