  • In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper pops what she describes as a “doorknob” cyst—and this thing truly is the size of a doorknob.

  • The cyst has no liquid-like contents, and instead flakes out in dry, brittle, chunky pieces.

  • The cyst featured in this video is likely an epidermoid cyst, which contains a collection of dead skin cells and keratin.

In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka, dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—pops what she calls a “doorknob” cyst. This growth indeed is truly the size of a doorknob—and that’s not even the most disturbing part. Just wait until you see what’s inside.

In the clip, Dr Lee makes an incision into the angry, bulbous cyst, revealing its seriously compacted contents. But no liquid-like contents flows out of this nasty mass. Instead it’s insides are all dry, flakey and almost solid.

With a squeeze, the cyst contents begin to emerge, boasting a disturbing brittle, chunky texture. With each squeeze, Dr. Lee uses gauze to grab at the emerging contents, slowly pulling it all out.

Dr. Lee comments that the growth looks similar to a hard boiled egg, which it undeniable does. One fan, however, compared the contents to a combination of haggis and foie gras, which is unfortunately way too accurate.

The cyst featured in this video is likely an epidermoid cyst, which contains a collection of wet dead skin cells and keratin. Though it’s unclear where this particular cyst is on the patient, epidermoid cysts often occur on the face, neck, and body.
