Dr Sandra Lee, who admires Elizabeth's attitude despite the severity of her situation, is unsure where, to begin with, such a complicated case
UPLAND, CALIFORNIA: Dr Sandra Lee's TLC show 'Dr Pimple Popper' is immensely popular with viewers. The latest episode of the show's eighth season will showcase one of the most delicate cases Dr Lee has ever faced.
'Dr Pimple Popper' Season 7 Episode 6 'Hard Knot Life' highlighted a few patients who were bothered about lumps on their bodies. Jason had lost confidence and motivation as a result of the big growth on his neck, Shawnell has many unexplained bumps on her head that have wrecked her self-esteem, and Jim has a growth extending from his nose that makes breathing difficult. In the preview clip released by TLC for the sixth episode of the current season, Elizabeth had to cope with massive bumps on her head. Even though she needs a translator to communicate with Dr Lee, the suffering she is experiencing is beyond comprehension.
When Dr Lee questioned Elizabeth about what brought her to the clinic considering that she looked completely well, Elizabeth revealed the massive bumps on her head hidden beneath her beanie. Elizabeth stated that she has had them for the past 53 years. It began with two bumps in the back, then expanded all over her head with more and more bumps. When asked if she was the only one in the family who had these bumps, Elizabeth responded that she and her father were the only ones. Her father appears to have a severe condition comparable to hers.
In terms of discomfort, Elizabeth stated that she experiences none in general, except when she has to sleep on her side. Her family member recalled the moment when she had to undergo two surgeries, which was a painful ordeal. Dr Lee discovered that following surgery, the bumps on Elizabeth's head did not come back; instead, she developed new bumps. Dr Lee, who admires Elizabeth's attitude despite the severity of her situation, is unsure where, to begin with, such a complicated case.
Dr Lee notices Elizabeth has several bumps on her head, but they are separated as if they are resting on a smaller base. As a result, it seems much larger than it is when it adheres to her. According to Dr Lee, Elizabeth has a disorder known as cylindromas. According to the doctor, cylindromas are frequently associated with a genetic illness known as Multiple Trichoepitheliomas, although they are benign given Elizabeth's overall health. However, Elizabeth's most severe case of widespread cylindromas has resulted in such cosmetic disfigurement.
Cylindromas, according to Dr Lee, are solid benign growths. However, it is difficult to treat since the bumps are pink, suggesting that there are numerous blood veins flowing through them. So, Dr Lee must remove the bumps while avoiding excessive bleeding, which will likely slow her down or prohibit her from continuing.
Can Dr Lee help Elizabeth without causing much trouble in the future? Do tune into TLC on Wednesday at 9 pm ET for a brand-new episode of 'Dr Pimple Popper' Season 8.
