The cyst being broken up by the doctor (Picture: Caters)
A ridiculously gross video has emerged of a giant cyst being popped by a clearly quite repulsed doctor. The revolting footage shows a medic cutting into a boil-type lump. ,But the American doctor soon gets into it, plucking open the gaping laceration and playing with the cyst mucous in his gloved hands. The video came from the Los Angeles-based practice of Dr Michael Lewis. Working from Willow Medical Centre, he removed the patient’s epidermal cyst.
Throughout the video he pulls at the hard skin, until it finally bursts. 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.’
