An epidermoid cyst (Epidermal Inclusion cyst, Infundibular cyst),  is a benign growth commonly found in the skin and typically appears on the face, neck or trunk, but can occur anywhere on the body.  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 odor. An epidermoid cyst may have no symptoms and are typically harmless. Usually people seek removal because they don’t like the appearance of these bumps, or the cyst has ruptured or been inflamed or “infected” in the past.  Rupture is associated with sudden redness, pain, swelling, and local heat, and can lead to abscess formation. Also, a history of inflammation, often increases scar tissue in the area, makes the cyst more firmly adherent to surrounding skin, and makes it more difficult to remove.  Surgical excision is curative, but the complete cyst removal including the entire cyst sac and contents need to be removed to ensure that the cyst won’t reoccur.

I love when she pulled back with the camera so that you could see his entire upper body. That way you could really get into perspective exactly how big this cyst was. They always look enormous...and it truly was. But its nice to truly know how big these things are!! This was a goooood one (Said in my best Dr. Lee voice) LOL!

How do these people let the cyst get so big? Do they not see or feel it?
Daniel Bustos
I want mashed potatoes now
It's like instant mashed potato flakes that do not have enough water/milk mixed in with them.
Marae Abrams
Do you throw away your tools after using them or do you use the same tools on several patients?

My second time watching. my prayers to this man and his family. It's very sad to see your parents lose themselves and who they were. I've lived with family having Alzheimer's and it was heartbreaking to see them lose all memory of them ,you and the rest of your family. It's very hard on the care takers and loved ones. Prayers my friend
Frances Wright
No your not weird, I can eat and watch these too. Also it's nice to know that I'm not weird that there are other popaholics out there
Idk if it's just me but i don't think i would let a pill popper do this to me...
His wound looks so yonic!
Maria Marchese

Because of these videos, I became less scared of holes like this. I'm very trypophobic but watching these helps ease it.

I love your work. I am so into these videos! Hooked on Dr. Lee. Your videos are top notch and you are quite the perfectionist. You are my kind of doctor! Oh yeah, I have learned so much from you, I don't want you to quiz me or anything like that😂. You have such a gentle warm bedside manner! Did I tell you how much I love these videos!? Keep them coming because I am intrigued. Thank you for the education! I would love to assist you with some surgeries and get my hands in the mix of things.

This must be the first video I have seen with a new microphone because I can hear every little squish and cut and breath and it's a little more realistic than I was expecting 🙈
Samantha Holmes
The only thing I can't handle is the cutting out of the wedge of skin 😭
Rosebloom 099
what is the white tissue when you cut open the cyst at 1:40? is it the cyst or part of the skin?
so Big .
Loving your newfound passion for title puns.
