Stomach-churning footage shows a doctor popping a huge cyst that had grown on a woman’s chest.
The clip shows pus oozing out of the unidentified woman’s cyst, before infected tissue is cleaned out and the gaping hole is sewn back up.
Dr Michael Lewis MD, who runs his own practice in Woodland Hills, California, USA recorded the footage – but it’s not recommended viewing for the faint of heart.
Dr Lewis said: “This nice young lady had a cyst which inflamed over two days and needed drainage.
“After I dissected out the sac and infected tissue, the surrounding tissue was healthy and strong, most likely because the infection was fresh.
“I then sutured it closed.
“I have always enjoyed performing these sorts of procedures – it’s one of my favourite things to do.
“I perform multiple procedures weekly from simple things like cleaning out ear wax and joint injections to removal of masses on the skin.
“Nothing bothers me too much as far as procedures go, however if the smell is bad it can be really tough.”
