Dr. Sandra Lee has earned the nickname of Dr. Pimple Popper by popping countless skin conditions throughout her career. However, she really had her work cut out for her with this patient…
In this video, a patient comes to Dr. Lee asking her to slice open the enormous lipoma on his back. What comes out must be seen to be believed.
When one guy discovered a lump on his back, he sought medical attention to make sure it wasn’t a sign of something that could potentially lead to serious health concerns in the future. When he visited Dr. Sandra Lee, she decided to remove the lump. Now, there’s a video of the procedure, and the gruesome removal has people cringing.
The 14-minute video begins with a clear shot of the patient’s back and the massive cyst that needs to be removed. The cyst appears to take up a substantial amount of space on the man’s back, which would explain the discomfort he’d been suffering prior to the doctor’s visit.
The procedure, which Dr. Lee described as “difficult,” begins with her using a surgical tool to slice open the massive cyst. From the looks of it, the area is quite difficult to break down, but with a little force, she’s able to slice it open. Once the cyst is open, she starts to apply pressure to expand the hole. After much probing and cutting, she’s able to remove all the tissue.
After testing the tissue that was removed, Dr. Lee was able to identify it as a lipoma, which is a benign cyst that grows under the skin. Dr. Lee also included a detailed explanation of lipoma with the description of the video.
A lipoma is slow-growing, benign growth of fat cells. It is contained in a thin, fibrous capsule and found right under the skin. A lipoma is typically not tender and moves around easily with slight pressure. A lipoma is not cancerous and treatment generally is not necessary. There is also a condition called familial lipomatosus, where people develop multiple lipomas, especially on the arms and legs, and other family members have these growths as well.
