Dr. Lee Examines a Patient Suffering from Painful Tumors | Dr. Pimple Popper


I HAVE A PATIENT COMING IN TODAY WHO HAS A LIFELONG
CONDITION, REALLY, SO I’M INTERESTED IN SEEING
WHAT EXACTLY IS GOING ON HERE. Matt:
I’M FINALLY HERE TO SEE DR. LEE, AND I AM VERY EXCITED
TO MEET HER. I’M HOPING SHE’S ABLE
TO REMOVE THE TUMORS THAT ARE ON MY SIDE
AND ONE THAT’S ON MY BACK THAT ARE AGGRAVATING ME,
GIVING ME A LOT OF BOTHER JUST SO I CAN LIVE EVERYDAY LIFE WITHOUT SUFFERING IN PAIN. -HELLO.
-HI, THERE. HOW ARE YOU?
ARE YOU MATT? -YES, MA’AM.
-HI. I’M SANDRA.
IT’S REALLY NICE TO MEET YOU. -PLEASURE.
-WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU? I HAVE
NEUROFIBROMATOSIS… -OKAY.
-…WHICH IS NF1. YES, NEUROFIBROMATOSIS
TYPE ONE. THAT’S WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE
FROM THE GET-GO FOR ME. THIS LOOKS LIKE, TO ME —
IF YOU DON’T MIND IF I TOUCH IT? -NO.
-THIS LOOKS TO ME LIKE WHAT’S CALLED
A PLEXIFORM NEUROFIBROMA. -YEAH.
-AND THAT CAN BE, LIKE, THOSE CAN BE LARGER LIKE THIS
AND KIND OF DROOPY AND KIND OF, LIKE,
MULTIPLE FOLDS HERE. I HAD THIS DONE TWICE,
AND IT WENT ALL THE WAY TO HERE. OKAY, SO THEY REALLY DID
TAKE OUT A LOT. THAT’S WHY I SEE
THIS SCARRING HERE. SO, LET’S KIND OF TALK ABOUT THE THINGS
THAT BOTHER YOU HERE, YOU KNOW? ARE THESE THINGS REALLY — ARE SOME OF THEM CAUSING YOU A
LOT OF PAIN OR DISCOMFORT, OR — -THERE’S A BUMP RIGHT HERE.
-LET ME SEE. Dr. Lee:
MATT HAS HAD SOME HELP ALREADY WITH SOME OF THE PHYSICAL
SKIN DEFORMITIES THAT HE HAS
FROM HIS NEUROFIBROMATOSIS, BUT NEUROFIBROMATOSIS HAS
A LOT OF TRICKS UP ITS SLEEVE. THERE ARE BUMPS THAT OCCUR
JUST UNDER THE SKIN, THINGS THAT YOU CAN’T
PHYSICALLY SEE, BUT SOMETHING THAT CAN BE EXCRUCIATINGLY PAINFUL,
EXCRUCIATING. SO THESE ARE THE THINGS
THAT I’M HOPING I CAN HELP HIM WITH TODAY. THAT’S THE ONE WHERE IT’S LIKE
IF YOU HIT YOUR FUNNY BONE… -RIGHT.
-…IT HURTS THAT INTENSE. I KNOW. IT’S, LIKE,
REALLY FIRM, ACTUALLY. YEAH, LIKE A ROCK. LIKE A SKIPPING ROCK. YEP, A PAINFUL ONE. WELL, IT’S PRETTY
SUPERFICIAL. I’M NOT REALLY EXACTLY SURE
WHAT YOU GOT THERE. MAYBE WE COULD PUT
A LITTLE NICK AND KIND OF PULL
THAT LITTLE THING OUT FOR YOU. I HAVE ONE THAT’S RIGHT
ON MY BACK OF MY SHOULDER. ONE OF THE SCARY THINGS
ABOUT NEUROFIBROMATOSIS IS THERE ARE BUMPS
THAT CAN OCCUR ON YOUR BODY THAT COULD BE CANCEROUS
OR COULD BE LIFE-THREATENING, SO THIS IS A SERIOUS CONDITION.
