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!
Alana Black
That's better than a pimple! I wanna squeeze that too!
Jenn Ott
@Dr. Sandra Lee what is the metal thing you used?
Jenn Ott
does anyone else want to take a spoon and carefully scoop the gunk out? I wish I could see her do this in person... that'd be cool.

Massive! I can't stand even tiniest little bump of a pimple on my face/body without scratching or popping it open and getting it off me. I can never fathom how anyone allows something to grow this big on their body.
Vivian Garber
Doc Lee, you need to develop a cyst scoop..bigger then a curette smaller then a melon baller.

Jess Crouse
This one was AMAZING
I've always wondered if leaving some of the cyst contents could cause regrowth. Not the cyst wall, but cyst content.

GOD! I wish I had your job!! Not only is dermatology fascinating, but you get paid to pop people's zits & squeeze the chaos out of ppl's cysts, abscesses, lipomas, etc lumps. My ex wouldn't even let me pop his darn blackheads (clearly he had no sense of adventure), and I rarely get many to pop on myself.

LOVE how Dr. Lee removed lots of extra scar tissue to make it lay flatter - she always goes the extra mile to ensure the patients have the best outcome possible. Well done, this one was absolutely divine!
Is there any chance we could see some updates of patients' scars after some significant healing time has passed? It would be fabulous to see how they look, a now and then aspect!
Alex Sebastian
Thank you for a good watch... we're eating pecan pie in bed watching your good work before going to sleep... i enjoyed this one... I'm glad it didn't come out in one whole peice... ..
