'Dr Pimple Popper': Roger calls a 10-year-old growth on shoulder his 'second head'
Since the previous doctor wasn't ready to operate because of the location of the bump, Dr Lee was a little nervous
TLC's 'Dr Pimple Popper' features patients with the worst skin problems who have lost all their confidence and self-love. And as usual, Dr Sandra Lee, one of the most experienced and knowledgeable dermatologists, comes to their rescue.
Dr Sandra Lee earlier promised that she would be tackling one of the worst and most unique cases that she might have never imagined by herself. True to her words, in 'Dr Pimple Popper' Season 7, Dr Lee tackles some of the unique skin conditions. In the recently aired episode of the show titled 'Bubble, Bubble, Ear's in Trouble', Dr Lee tackled three patients with different skin conditions, and Roger was among them. Roger had a big bump on his shoulder that he jokingly called his 'second head.' Roger, 57-year-old, is a carpenter by profession, but he leads a miserable life due to the massive bump on his shoulder. Apart from Roger, two other patients, including Jenna with a bubble behind her ear and Susan with bumps from head to toe, were seen in the recently aired episode.
Roger explained all the hardships he faced due to the massive bump. He said that it was painful even to move his hand. When Roger was asked whether he tried to consult any other doctor, he explained that a doctor told him that it was a lipoma, but wasn't ready to operate because of the location of the bump. After hearing this, Dr Lee was a little nervous and asked Roger to get a CT scan done on the bump. After getting the report, Dr Lee was sure and confident about operating the lipoma. Dr Lee started the surgery by giving him a dose of anesthesia and slicing the huge bump into two halves.
Dr Lee took out all the puss and collected mass, and after that, she stitched the cut. Roger was delighted to say goodbye to the 10-year-old bump. Now Roger can freely move his hand without feeling any pain and don't have to worry about hiding the huge bump.
