Dr Sandra Lee, often known as Dr Pimple Popper, takes viewers on a journey into the lives of individuals suffering from significant skin diseases. James, her newest patient, arrives with unexplained growths for which he has yet to find a diagnosis.

On 'Dr Pimple Popper,' dermatologist Sandra Lee, MD, meets with people suffering from unusual, sometimes self-defeating skin disorders every week. The boils they carry are enormous. The cysts are growing to the size of a balloon. The individuals beneath the extraordinary bumps and growths, though, are what make the show worth watching. If you must, cover your eyes during the pus-filled eruptions in the forthcoming episode, which will air on Wednesday night.

James' body is riddled with weird growths. He was about eight or nine years old when he missed a ball that hit him in the crotch while playing baseball with his brother. It caused his groin to swell dramatically. He eventually turned to Dr Lee after years of receiving no diagnosis.

Dr Lee asks whether he has seen anybody about his mysterious growths, to which James responds that he has visited several doctors about it, but no one knows what it is. No one took a biopsy and pushed him away. For Dr Lee, James already sounded like a complicated patient. He has seen several doctors, but no one has performed a skin biopsy on him. When Dr Lee hears a scenario like this, she suspects that she is not getting all the facts from the patient or that the case will be tough for her to handle.

James ultimately takes out the "mysterious growth" from beneath his lower abdomen, dubbed the Super Pubic Area by Dr Lee. The region is essentially the intersection of our upper abdomen and the pubic area. Dr Lee notices how firm the growth is upon closer inspection. James tells Dr Lee an amusing anecdote about riding a motorcycle and how the vibration caused the growth to flatten.

It no longer occurs now that the motorbike is no longer present. Dr Lee refers to the region as the Pannus, which is the top section of the pubic area. Dr Lee has never seen somebody with something like that and has no idea how a certain vibration can change it. She has no idea what type of condition she is dealing with. Dr Lee admits in a confessional that James is a bit of a mystery. He also shows Dr Lee the fresh growths that are just sprouting.

Do you think Dr Lee will be able to diagnose James's condition? Tune into TLC on August 10 at at 9 pm for a brand-new episode of 'Dr Pimple Popper' Season 8.
