‘I see the beginning of a new life.’

her patient Gerald’s massive finger tumor
, which other docs had mistaken for a lipoma.
At first it seems this bump has Dr. P is stumped, so she calls up an orthopedic hand surgeon to take charge of this removal.”We want to remove it entirely so we can at least ensure that it is all out,” she says.
Dr. Pimple Popper
looks on as the surgeon starts slicing into the growth and finds a vascular tumor inside.”This is a one in 20-year kind of a thing,” she says. The hand surgeon has to cut around nerves to preserve mobility and sensation throughout Gerald’s finger.
Check out this video of Gerald’s tumor:
When he finally snips it completely off of the finger, everyone breathes a sigh of relief. It was touch and go for a while.”That’s amazing, take a picture of that,” he says. Dr. Pimple Popper jokes,”I should have done it in the office.” The doctors’ final verdict: It may be a
chondroid syringoma, a rare (but benign) type of tumor.”I’ve never seen anything with strawberry jam come out of it,” Dr. Pimple Popper says.
“I felt I had a burden lifted,” Gerald says.

I see the beginning of a new life. The old me is gone and the new me is here.”
He can celebrate, but
Dr. Pimple Popper
has another patient to treat. Vinnie is a 14-year-old boy has a massive birth mark on the back of his neck. He says,”People stare at it and call him names.” It was much smaller when he was born, about the size of a quarter with a lightning bolt in the middle. People call him”poop neck” so he hides it by wearing a hoody.
His mom is hesitant but supports Vinnie’s choice to speak to a dermatologist to learn more and see what, if anything, can be done. Dr. Pimple Popper says it’s a congenital nevus, which is a fancy word for mole. They can extend down below the surface of the skin, and Dr. Pimple Popper says he has some reason to be concerned. Moles have a higher risk of developing skin cancer.
She says that a mole of this size can be removed but requires multiple sittings with”tissue expanders” to stretch the skin.”This is a long, laborious painful process,” she says.
