'Dr Pimple Popper' Season 8: Can Dr Sandra Lee get rid of Michael's giant 20-year-old head cyst?
Michael Steen approaches Dr Sandra Lee to get a big cyst on his head removed after hiding it for 20 years
Dr Sandra Lee is back with a brand-new season of 'Dr Pimple Popper,' one of TLC's most repulsive yet engaging series. In the first episode of the season, Dr Lee meets a man with a huge cyst on his head.
'Dr Pimple Popper' has been a success since its TLC premiere in 2018. The reality program exposes viewers to the various areas of dermatology. It centers on board-certified dermatologist Dr Sandra Lee and depicts her typical day of identifying and treating skin issues. Although season 7 ended in April, viewers are already eagerly anticipating the next season. Michael Steen will be one of the first patients Dr Sandra Lee sees in the new season that premieres in July.
Michael Steen has been keeping a large cyst, which has developed dramatically over the last five years, hidden under his hat for the past 20 years. In an exclusive preview of Wednesday's episode of 'Dr Pimple Popper,' Michael says that he always wears hats and asks Dr Sandra Lee for assistance in removing the cyst. When he removes his camo bucket hat, we see the spherical cyst dressed in its own little fedora. Lee replied with excitement: "This is the cutest cyst with the cutest little fedora." While Michael claimed that most people cringe or show concern when they see his lump, Lee showed excitement.
"He doesn't take his hat off!" Michael cracks a joke. Lee immediately recognizes the cyst as a pilar cyst, a form with which she is familiar. Lee claims that she won't be certain until she removes it, but it feels like it. There is some hair loss over the cyst, and Lee equates it to a balloon that is being inflated "because it's filling with contents."
Michael is eager to get rid of it. "Michael is such a fun-loving, wonderful guy, but I do think that it's time for this bump to take its final bow," Lee adds.
However, the procedure will be difficult. There is a lot of excess skin covering the cyst since it has been developing for years. How will she manage to make the excess skin sit flat on his scalp? Lee seems perplexed. Dr Pimple Popper, on the other hand, is not afraid of a challenge. "We're gonna have some fun!" she exclaims to Michael. "And hopefully, we'll be able to take this off successfully without any issues."
Michael recalled his experience with the cyst before the operation. He has had his hump for 20 years and is eager for it to go. "I'm anxious to go into this procedure. I'm excited, scared, I'm everything. I'm all of it at one time."
'Dr Pimple Popper' airs on TLC on Wednesdays at 9 pm ET/8 pm CT. Catch the season premiere of the show on July 13 to see how Dr Sandra Lee gives Michael one of the most precious gifts of his life.
