Most lumps and swellings under the skin are harmless and can be left alone. A painful lump or swelling that appears suddenly over a day or two may be caused by an injury or infection. It’s likely to be an infection if the skin around the lump is red and warm. Your GP can advise you about how to care for this.One example for that is one older woman that went to see Dr. Sandra Lee or known as Dr. Pimple Pooper which is a popular dermatologist.
When for the first time the doctor saw the thing on the older woman’s back thought that it is blackhead because it was larger in size. However, it was an epidermoid cyst. This is a type of benign cyst that grows out of the ectodermal tissue. It is sometimes referred to as keratin cyst.
The doctor first thought that it is blackhead but rather it was a benign, flat cyst.
She had that cyst in her body for around three years, the cyst was slowly growing and progressing to a stage that it was serious and dreadful by appearance.
The sack didn’t come out very easy and quickly, there was a lot of fragments that took a time to get them all out, but happily after that nothing was complicated and the doctor eliminate the cyst successfully.
There is a video online that shows Dr. Lee’s step-by-step process of removing the cyst. She was able to remove the entire cyst. After Dr. Lee removed the cyst, she placed a couple of sutures.
The video of Dr. Lee popping the pimple has been placed on YouTube. It has been viewed over 1.6 million times. It has liked over 5,000 times. Dr. Lee stated that this is one of the things she was looking forward to seeing.
