TLC's 'Dr Pimple Popper' sometimes becomes an extremely nerve-wracking show. Some of the patients featured have a normal or minor problem that can be solved with a small surgery, but some really have significant issues and watching them can put you off.

In the recently aired episode of 'Dr Pimple Popper' Season 7, Dr Sandra Lee was seen tackling three skin conditions, and Susan's was perhaps the worst. Apart from Susan, the other patients were Roger, with a massive bump on his shoulder creating problems in his professional and personal life, and Jenna, who has an enormous bubble behind her ears and wants to get rid of it. Susan has thousands of bumps from her head to toe, and due to this, she has started hating herself. As people stare at her differently, she feels embarrassed to get out of her house. In short, the condition has rendered her life miserable.

Susan has been suffering from Neurofibromatosis - a genetic disorder that causes tumors to form on nerve tissue - since childhood. These tumors can develop anywhere in the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. There are three types of neurofibromatosis: neurofibromatosis 1, neurofibromatosis 2 and schwannomatosis. In Suan's case, the bumps became massive as she grew older. She was also disappointed with her parents because they didn't tell her about the skin problem.

Moreover, she was depressed that her daughter was suffering from the same problem, because of her. Susan was going through a lot of pain because the bumps were itchy at times and sometimes even bled. Dr Sandra Lee made sure to remove all the major bumps that made her life hell. Dr Lee knew that taking out all the bumps separately would be time-consuming and nearly impossible. So, with Susan's consent, she decided to take out those ones that were the most troublesome, like the one on her lower waist that smarted whenever she removed her pants and the one on her scalp that hurt while she combed her hair.

Instead of slicing the bumps, Dr Lee used her tool to take out all the bumps from her face and back. Susan and her daughter were both really happy to see her new look without any bumps.
