That’s just gross.[1] I know that it is common to have this sort of thing done, but yuck! I’m sure it did smell bad. This man had a cyst excised and the hardened pus removed from it. There was so much that it left a gaping hole that had to be stitched. The amazing part is that it did not hurt at all and he was sent right back to work. That’s a minor miracle in itself.

Cyst Hole1[2]

From the Daily Mail:

This is the toe-curling moment a man’s enormous cyst is squeezed – leaving a huge hole in his skin.

A punch biopsy tool is used to remove the circle of skin covering the cyst, before the vile contents are squeezed out by Dr Solomon Brickman.

The video of the procedure, carried out by the dermatologist based in Houston, Texas, has been watched on YouTube more than 750,000 times.

The stomach-churning footage shows a large amount of pus being squeezed from the hole, before it is stitched up.

A woman watching the cyst removal says: ‘Wow. I’ve known that was inside of it – I knew it was.

‘You’re going to be so glad this is out. It does smell like death a little bit.’

The man undergoing the procedure asks how many days he will get off work, but he is told he can go back in just 20 minutes.

The man said the cyst excision did not hurt.

I know this went viral, but I find it very hard to watch and/or stomach. The punch biopsy tool they used is interesting. I’ve never seen one of those before. The human body is amazing in how it will section off an infection from the rest of itself like this. This man’s overall health should improve a great deal with this infection removed. Even when a cyst looks small, it can contain a great deal that needs to be taken out. This is a good example of that and an excellent argument for visiting a dermatologist.
