I am quite used to seeing people pop their pimples and small cysts online, but I was not prepared to witness this one.
Watch as Dr. Gilmore attempts to remove a cyst that's as big as a golf ball. Worse, it was located in his patient's scalp.
Dr. John Gilmore from Houston, Texas has always paid great attention to the massive cyst on this patient's head for four years.
His patient was nicknamed Grover and had to travel about 250 miles just to see the doctor.
Dr. Gilmore observed that it would only develop as time goes on, so its immediate removal was the only option.
Grover is a pilot, and he did not need this strange lump in his head.
The doctor indicated that it was the biggest every cyst he has ever removed in someone's scalp.
Simply, I could not handle looking at the cyst that had existed in his patient's head for years.
Dr. Gilmore had to use a pair of pliers to properly remove the cyst.
The doctor knew that the cyst could burst and hit him, but he noted that it was simply part of his job.
Actually, Dr. Gilmore initially did not want to perform the operation.
Hopefully, Grover won't ever have to deal with such a physical problem again.
