We found a popping video of this gross "cyst rose," and brace yourselves
She’s smart, she’s competent, and she knows how to pop a cyst. Yes, we’re talking about Dr. Sandra Lee, aka, Dr. Pimple Popper, of course. And much to our delight, the good doctor recently posted a video entitled “A Cyst Rose on the Neck.”
Now before you popping addicts get too excited, know that she’s not actually referring to a cyst shaped like a rose, or like, several cysts in a cluster that somehow looks like a rose (fyi: We may have just grossed ourselves out). Rather, she just means to say that popping her patient’s cyst was like getting a rose…which only the truly popping-obsessed could ever understand.
Technically, the video — posted April 2nd — is of an epidermoid cyst being removed, which, as the doctor says in the video description, is “a benign growth commonly found in the skin and typically appears on the face, neck or trunk, but can occur anywhere on the body.” She also noted that, the “pasty contents are mostly composed of macerated keratin (wet skin cells), which creates this ‘cheesy’ consistency, and there can be a pungent odor.” Um…cool?
Okay, are you ready? Here we go:
Dr. Lee notes that this type of cyst typically isn’t dangerous in any way, but patients may opt for removal because they don’t like the way the cyst looks or feels.
Welp, another day, another grotesquely compelling cyst popping vid. Thanks for everything, Dr. Lee! Can’t wait for the next one.
