  • In her latest Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper has an ear cyst to take out.

  • According to the dermatologist, this growth looks just like a 'stalagmite' once it's been popped.

  • While it "hangs out," for a minute, Dr. Pimple Popper is able to pluck it free.

Usually when Dr. Pimple Popper makes a clever reference to the shape or texture of one of her latest pops, it's food, and it's delightfully gross. Her latest ear cyst has a new reference that's just as spot-on. In her latest Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper — aka dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee — must free the contents of a cyst from a patient, and according to her, it looks just like a 'stalagmite.'

If it's been a minute since you took middle school science, a stalagmite is an upward growing mound typically found in a cave. Its counterpart is a downward pointing collection of rock called a stalactite. Regardless of whether you see this cyst's content as hanging down or growing up from of Dr. Lee's patient's ear, it's still an accurate analogy.

In the video, Dr. Lee begins by making a tiny incision just over the top of the growth before she begins to press in with her fingers. Soon, a thick collection of white filling pops out, and the lumpy contents look just like the cave formation. But it's much easier to remove than rocks. Dr. Lee plucks it right out of her patient just before the end of the video.
