Dr Pimple Popper Attacks “Baby Face” Looking 50 Year Old Cyst
Oh hell no!
So we’ve all had a zit that’s larger than normal and wondered how the hell it grew to that size. But this is next level stuff here! This is no ordinary unsightly dermal growth – it’s a 50-year old cyst. The growth has been called the ‘babyface’ due to the epidermoid cyst’s uncanny resemblance to an infant’s head. One may be forgiven for mistaking it for a pimple, and despite the technical differences, the result when Dr Sandra Lee gets her hands on it is spectacularly similar.
In this sickening video, Dr Lee, a board-certified dermatologist, skin cancer surgeon, and cosmetic surgeon firstly believes the baby-faced growth to be a Lipoma which is a benign tumour. Dr Lee is ecstatic to learn that it is, in fact, a cyst and she can get to work doing what she does best.
Needless to say, these types of growths are best handled by a professional.
The aptly nicknamed ‘Dr. Pimple Popper’ after surveying the beastly mound, takes a scalpel makes a long incision. After lancing. She manages to jettison a river of grey discharge from the orifice.
“Oh, that’s a cyst!” Dr Lee says in the video as she cuts the skin. “Sometimes they take us by surprise!”
It was revealed that the lump had been with the 55-year-old patient since he was 5 years old. It would be a strange thing to lose a half-century old companion.
Usually, benign cysts like this one are non-painful and not harmful. However, they can become infected and resemble a large white-headed pimple with associated pain. As tempting as it may be to have a red-hot crack at an inflamed cyst, you are better off having it lanced by a medical practitioner and properly drained. They will then be able to properly cleanse and dress the wound to help it heal without further issue.
