Another day, another cyst popping video. This time it’s from the infamous Sandra Lee – aka Dr Pimple Popper. The below video, which shows the doctor removing an epidermoid cyst on a patient’s cheek, has gone viral after being posted on her channel. Dr Popper said:
Another name used is ‘sebacous cyst’ but this is actually an antiquated misnomer, and is not a term used by dermatologists.
They are also the most common type of cutaneous cysts. Epidermoid cysts result from the reproduction of epidermal cells within a confined space of the dermis.
The pasty contents are mostly composed of macerated keratin (wet skin cells), which creates this ‘cheesy’ consistency, and there can be a pungent odour.

Well, now that you’ve read that lovely description, why not check out what it looks like when you pop one of these beasts:
Grimy. I find it difficult to make it through these videos without feeling queasy, and yet the world keeps demanding them. Guess there’s still a market for the cyst popping/pimple squeezing fetish out there.
If you’re into that kind of thing, why not check out this woman’s absolutely insane pimple popping session. Gross.
