Lisa Has a “Horn” Coming Out of Her Head | Dr. Pimple Popper


HI! HOW ARE YOU?
HI. GOOD, HOW ARE YOU?
I’M SANDRA. IT’S NICE TO MEET YOU.
WHAT’S GOING ON? PEOPLE DON’T COME AND SEE ME
AND THEN START CRYING. HONEY. JUST A LOT OF EMOTION. OKAY.
ALL RIGHT. WE’RE JUST HERE
TO TALK RIGHT NOW AND SEE WHAT’S GOING ON
WITH YOU, RIGHT? CAN YOU TELL ME
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT? I HAVE A HORN GROWING
OUT OF MY HEAD. OKAY.
ALL RIGHT. HOW LONG HAS
THAT BEEN GOING ON? A LITTLE OVER A YEAR. MY FAMILY SUFFERS FROM… WE GET THESE OTHER CYSTS
ON OUR HEAD. I HAVE A COUPLE
OF SMALL ONES HERE. OH, OKAY.
I HAVE ONE RIGHT HERE. OKAY.
YEAH, YES, OKAY. AND THEN THERE’S
ANOTHER ONE DOWN… AND I HAD ONE, AND IT BROKE, AND OF COURSE
I SQUEEZED IT. UH-HUH. IT CAME TO A POINT WHERE
I COULDN’T SQUEEZE IT ANYMORE, AND THEN THIS STARTED GROWING. OKAY.
THAT’S CALLED A PILAR CYST. WELL, MY MOTHER
USED TO CALL THEM WENS. YES. SHE’S ACTUALLY RIGHT,
WENS, W-E-N. THAT IS A WAY — ANOTHER TERM WE USE
FOR THOSE ON YOUR HEAD. RIGHT. A WEN IS JUST ANOTHER TERM
FOR A PILAR CYST. JUST LIKE A MOLE IS ALSO
CALLED A NEVUS, OR A SKIN TAG IS ALSO CALLED
AN ACROCHORDON, OR A WART IS ALSO
CALLED A VERRUCA. ALL RIGHT.
SHOULD I TAKE A LOOK AT IT? I’M VERY INTERESTED IN SEEING
WHAT THIS BUMP LOOKS LIKE NOW. BUT THE WAY THAT SHE
DESCRIBES HER WEN, IT DOESN’T SOUND LIKE ANY PILAR
CYST THAT I’VE SEEN BEFORE. YEAH. IT’S LIKE YOU HAVE A FINGERNAIL THAT’S GONE CRAZY
OVER HERE, HUH? YES. WE CALL THAT USUALLY
A CUTANEOUS HORN WHEN WE SEE
SOMETHING LIKE THAT. THAT, LIKE, RING AROUND
IT IS SUPER SORE. RIGHT.
AND I CAN SEE HOW THAT’S TENDER BECAUSE IT’S REALLY
STRETCHING YOUR SKIN THERE. LET ME TAKE A LITTLE PHOTO OF IT
RIGHT NOW ACTUALLY, TOO. I MEAN, I’VE SEEN
CUTANEOUS HORNS BEFORE. I MEAN, BUT CERTAINLY THIS IS
THE LARGEST CUTANEOUS HORN THAT I’VE EVER SEEN. GIRL, WE GOT TO GET RID
OF THAT THING FOR YOU. ALL RIGHT? ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I’M
CERTAINLY THINKING ABOUT WITH LISA HERE
IS SKIN CANCER BECAUSE ONE TYPE
OF SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA CALLED A KERATOACANTHOMA
CAN LOOK LIKE THIS. I’M NOT EXACTLY SURE
WHAT IT IS. I FEEL LIKE YOU’VE GIVEN ME
A STORY HERE THAT SOUNDS LIKE IT
COULD BE A PILAR CYST, AND IT HAS GROWN
OUT OF CONTROL. THIS IS THE ANGRIEST
PILAR CYST I’VE EVER SEEN IF THAT’S THE CASE. BECAUSE USUALLY WHEN WE SEE
A CUTANEOUS HORN, WE DO THINK OF OTHER THINGS
THAT MIGHT BE A LITTLE BIT MORE
CONCERNING, YOU KNOW, THAT CAN HAPPEN
WITH TYPES OF SKIN CANCERS. ♪♪
