Dr. Sandra Lee has earned herself the nickname Dr. Pimple Popper by dealing with thousands of skin conditions throughout her career. In this video, however, she comes in contact with a skin tag the likes of which she’s never seen before.
Dr. Lee explains what happened in the video description:
This is such a sweet, great patient, who shows us a situation I see not uncommonly at the office. People who wait a long time to get a growth looked at, because they may be be a little frightened about getting the growth removed.
This is likely a skin tag aka acrochordon or a plexiform neurofibroma (both benign growths), that has grown to quite a large size. I suppose he was able to avoid getting it treated for so long, since it is on an area of the body easily hidden by clothing.
I think he was surprised at how simple it was to remove a growth like this. Most of the time, I hear these patients say later: “Wow, why didn’t I just do that sooner?” Stay tuned, because I will confirm pathology with you all in a future video.
We’re glad this got taken care of, but this video really grossed us out!
