In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper – also known as a dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD – slams a bulging cyst on a patient's neck. And what comes out really looks like one of those crazy pictures of a microscopic organism. You know, those who make you fear the creepy tiny life forms that you can't see. Oh man, this one is rough.
In the clip, Dr. Lee's cyst with her fingers and squeezes out her chunky gray contents through a small incision. She then uses surgical scissors to cut the contents free. It's a fairly simple procedure, but the appearance of the cyst after removal appeals to fans.
A fan said the content "looks like a mistake", which is actually a fairly accurate description. Once exposed, the cyst looks like the creepy microscopic organisms that can be seen in scientific black and white images. Yikes
Dr. Lee says in the clip that the growth is an epidermoid cyst. These types of cysts usually contain an accumulation of damp, dead skin cells and keratin. Epidermoid cysts often appear on the face and neck and are often gray-white in content.
