- In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper pops a steatocystoma that is filled with coconut oil-like goop.
- The oily contents flow out like a river once the growth is punctured with a scalpel.
- Steatocystomas are typically small, benign lumps that are filled with sebum, a yellow or whiteish oily substance.
In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka, dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—punctures a steatocystoma that’s ready to burst. The result is a seepage of coconut oil-like goop out of the chest cyst that’s particularly disgusting and oddly satisfying.
In the clip, the growth, which Dr. Lee says is very superficial on the skin, is easily punctured with a scalpel. Once the skin covering the cyst is broken, the oily contents comes flowing out like a grotesque river.
“This is why I don’t get cream filled donuts,” one popaholic commented on the video. Another commenter compared the pop to “condensed milk.”
Steatocystomas are typically small, benign lumps that are filled with sebum. Sebum is a yellow or whiteish oily substance that helps lubricate the hair, skin, and nails, according to the National Institute of Health. And the oily goop can also collect in a cyst if too much is produced.
