To loosely quote Willy Wonka, this cyst is certainly one bad nut. In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper aka, dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD pops a neck cyst that is squirrel-like in appearance, according to some creative fans. And it's creating quite a stir on social media. "That's a doozy," one fan commented on the video. And the whole situation certainly is. In the rodent-reminiscent clip, Dr. Lee squeezes a large neck cyst, causing its contents to come out slowly. The cyst, which is likely an epidermoid cyst , has a unique whiteish-gray coloring and is quite lumpy in appearance. "Looks like she's giving birth to a squirrel," one particularly imaginative fan commented on the clip. Sure, it would be birth through the neck, but we will go with that. Though not a squirrel, the patient did "birth" a collection of wet dead skin cells and keratin , which collect in cysts of this nature. Depending on the melanin content in a person's skin, cyst contents can be grayish in appearance. Epidermoid cysts like this one often occur on the face, neck and body. So all in all, this "squirrel cyst" is actually quite a textbook specimen. Watch the squirrel cyst enter this cruel, cruel world below:
