Dr Pimple Popper leaves fans squirming after removing a pastor’s VERY unfortunately placed lipoma which looked like a ‘third testicle’ and made it difficult to sit down

  • Mass started off as a small lump which had tripled in size over a five year period 
  • Dr Sandra Lee explained it was actually a lipoma, which is a benign, fatty lump

Dr Sandra Lee left fans squirming after removing an unfortunately placed lipoma which fans said looked like a ‘third testicle’ on Dr Pimple Popper. 

In the latest episode of the reality show, which aired in the US on Wednesday and will be broadcast in the UK next week, assistant pastor Jeremy visited the doctor with a lump hanging from his groin region.  

He explained the mass had started as a small lump five years ago, but had tripled in size over the past three years, making it difficult to sit down and causing pain in his hip and back. 

Upon further inspection Dr Lee discovered the mass was in fact a harmless lipoma – a soft, fatty lump which grows underneath the skin and doesn’t usually need treatment.

‘It started as a bump about five years ago but the last three years it has over tripled in size’, said Jeremy, from California, as he arrived in the clinic. 

‘Because it’s there I can’t sit straight, so then it causes my hip and my back to hurt.’  

After explaining his issue, Dr Lee said: ‘Jeremy is a sweet guy, but a bump in this part for anyone would be difficult’. 

‘So I have to really make sure that he can maintain his modesty but show me what’s going on so that I can see what can be done.’

Jeremy appeared on the reality show because he was worried about the mass, which appeared five years ago but had rapidly increase din size over the last five years

WHAT IS A LIPOMA?

Lipomas are non-cancerous lumps caused by an overgrowth of fat cells.

They can form anywhere on the body, but are most common on the neck, shoulders, abdomen and back.

They are usually just under the skin, shaped like a dome and soft to touch. 

They occur in about one in every 1,000 people in the US. and about one in 100 people in the UK. 

Doctors are unsure of what causes lipomas, but believe it may be due to an inherited faulty gene or physical trauma.

Most do not cause any pain unless they are deep in the body and press on nerves or organs.

If a lipoma affects the bowels, it may cause constipation and nausea.

Most lipomas do not need removing, but surgery may be necessary if the growth is large, causing symptoms or unsightly.

Following an examination, the doctor revealed the mass was a lipoma, which are slow-growing fatty lumps located between your skin and the underlying muscle layer which aren’t usually painful. 

Dr Lee explained the mass was pedunculated, because it was hanging off a ‘little stalk’ and that she had seen similar lumps on male clients previously. 

‘I’ve seen a bump similar to this before in this kind of area’, she said. ‘What is it with men that they like to grow bumps to this large size in this area?’ 

Ahead of the surgery, the doctor was concerned about bleeding in the sensitive area and wanted to ensure she could stitch up Jeremy tightly so the wound would not open up after the operation.
