Watch the stomach-churning moment a man has a giant puss filled cyst removed.
Dr Michael Lewis, MD of Willow Medical Center based in Los Angeles, USA, was asked to remove an epidermal cyst from a gentleman.
Dr Mike can be seen tugging on the hard skin until the puss finally erupts from the incision, and with a little squeezing the rest is removed.
Michael said: “I have always enjoyed performing procedures – it’s one of my favourite things to do.
“I perform multiple procedures every week, from simple things like cleaning out ear wax and joint injections to removal of masses on the skin.
“As a family practice physician, we are taught to treat all ailments.
“I used to deliver babies but I don’t do that anymore and our scope of practice, one can say is, Womb to Tomb.
“Therefore part of my practice is treating lumps and bumps.
“Nothing bothers me too much as far as procedures go, however if the smell is bad, it can be really tough.
“On this one in particular I tried to use more blunt dissection.
“Because of this the procedure does appear to be a little rough, but I used light tugging to release its connections and to remove it whole.
“And being so zoomed in, the removal looks worse than it was.”
