Dr Michael Lewis, cut and then squeezed out the giant cyst after he had numbed the woman’s shoulder with an injection.Dr Lewis, who admits he enjoys the prodecure, identifies it as an epidermoid cyst.Working at his concierge medical practise Willow Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, Dr Lewis works as a Certified Family Practice Physician.
He said: “In this procedure I simply just remove the epidermoid cyst from the left shoulder and then close it. That should hopefully solve the problem.
“An epidermoid cyst is a benign cyst usually found on the skin. The cyst develops out of ectodermal tissue.
“Histologically, it is made of a thin layer of squamous epithelium. The epidermoid cyst may have no symptoms, or it may hurt when touched.
“As a family practice physician, we are taught to treat all ailments. I used to deliver babies but I don’t do that anymore.
“Our scope of practice, one can say is, Womb to Tomb. Therefore part of my practice is treating lumps and bumps. I have always enjoyed performing procedures – It is one of my favourite things to do.
