Can I Have the Scalpel When You’re Done?



Nice big cyst on side of young man’s face being lanced at what looks to be like an ER, nice payload, looks like good ricotta to me!! 

I laughed when he asked the doctor if he could have the scalpel after they were done. I wish they would have addressed the nice ripe zit above the cyst as well as the black heads below it. The scars on the poor man’s face seem to show a history of painful acne.

No profanity that I heard, the audio is lost in the last 30-45 seconds so your guess is as good as mine why the doctor is doing

“What?? Are you kidding me??? Ummm What… Why… Ugggggg I can’t figure it out!!!”

I am certainly looking forward to everyone’s opinions though… My thoughts when I saw what the doctor was doing…

“What the H#@&????  No it can’t be… Why would he do *that*??  I’m confused!!!”

  1. So many questions. Great video, by the way, thanks for posting.

    Maybe take the BT phone earpiece out of your ear before surgery?
    Did doc tuck the cyst sac BACK IN towards the end?!
    Was the eye swelling related to the cyst?

    Excellent super angry cyst, great post.

    1. This cyst was under rated, should be at least a 3.5, so I voted a 4 just to bring it up. Let’s analyse
      1. Big Round appearance
      2 Quick shot, no nonsense or waiting
      3. Deft puncture
      4. lots of nice pus and finally
      5. some interesting work with the sac although he should have pulled it out

      this one might not be thrilling, but it does not frustrate like so many.

    2. whaaaaaaat? WHAAAAAAAAT??? What the heck? Why did the doctor just do that? I think he was rushing the whole time and I’m angry at him.

      1. WhiteChocolateJesus says:

        And why didn’t he deal with the “whatever that was” below the eye? Was it part of the cyst, a separate cyst, a stye?
        I bet he wanted the scalpel b/c med ones are hard to find and he’s probable dealt with cysts ling enough he can excise them at home. At home he probably wouldn’t push the head in,
        Maybe the dr. was afraid to much manipulation would increase scarring?

        WCJ

  2. I can’t believe he didn’t pull the sac out. WHY?

    1. I think he put the sac back in so that it will fill up again…maybe he’s one of us! :)

      1. popitlikeitshot says:

        lmao

      2. ZealousZitZinger says:

        Thought the same thing!!!

    2. PlzEyeInCyst says:

      I’m glad they didn’t and I wish no one ever did, hopefully there will be more videos in the future.

      1. spicycrispypuppy says:

        Maybe I’m alone in this, but I think it’s wrong to wish bad things on people. Unless you suffer these types of cysts, you can’t imagine the pain. I have Hidradenitis. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.
        I may enjoy watching these popped, but I want it done right, and I don’t like it because of the pain it causes the patients.

    3. lcking0623 says:

      If I was this guy, I would have been really upset that the doctor put the sack back into his face. It looks like that his eye was swollen due to two cysts from the look of it. I would say that this doctor was causing more issues for this guy. Good luck!

      1. I agree! This poor man had almost half of his face swollen, it looked quite tender and painful, and the doctor couldn’t be bothered to remove the cyst correctly? He runs the risk of having another painfully infected cyst. This man doesn’t deserve to go through this again because the doctor is in a hurry.

        Was I the only one who heard the patient say something about “last time”? It made me believe he’d had a cyst removed before.

      2. popitlikeitshot says:

        Maybe he, like MANY people, don’t know what a ‘sac’ is. You say to the average person ‘cyst’, ‘boil’ etc… and they will likely have, at least, a rough idea of what they are, but have little or no knowledge about this subject, definately not like we do….. Just a thought ;)

    4. spicycrispypuppy says:

      Because doctors don’t make money off of fixing you right the first time. They get money from repeat visits. So he tucked that cyst wall back in, knowing it would re-flare, and he’d be seeing that patient again. It disgusts me. As a doctor, he should be ashamed. He’s a blight on the entire medical community.

      1. I hope you are wrong about that comment, for sure. I think he opted to push it back in because of all the nerves and stuff in the face. He could have snatched it out and then guy couldn’t ever left his eyebrow again of maybe worse, like blink his eye. I do know that in my own experience with MRSA lump on my left flip you off finger, the doctor wanted to cut hap harzadly and I stopped him, #1 because it wasn’t numb. I went to my GP the next day and she was furious. Never heard one doctor say negative stuff about their collegues, but she did. She indicated the same thing about the nerves, there are so many in the fingers, one wrong move and I wouldn’t be able to flip off anyone with my left hand..j/k, I would never!!

        That ‘s my story and I am sticking to it! :) :)

  3. Maybe he was worried about damaging a facial nerve? To see the sac removed would be cool :)

    1. I like that @gajustme !

      The facial nerve…I also think thats why he thought twice before taking the sac out roughly,and he stopped to think abt a more delicate approach…
      But who knows?!

      1. Pick_That_Puppy says:

        No angels got their wings on this one……… :(

    2. If that was his concern, wouldn’t he use a punch instead of a scalpel? I mean this as a serious, not sarcastic question. I just thought that’s why docs used punches for face incisions.

    3. Great minds!!

  4. pussbuster says:

    The dude asks the guy filming if he’s getting sick, then a few seconds later the sound went out, then the video.
    I imagine the camera man was getting sick and had to stop.
    That stinks.

    It looked like the doctor gave up trying to get the sack out, and pushed it back in.
    Hopefully he was just going to try another method to get it out.

    1. pussbuster says:

      I forgot to say it was great up to that point, thanks for posting it.

    2. My guess?…1. Maybe he was going to try another method as pussbuster stated, or…
      2. He was an intern and inexperienced, thus not knowking what it was. (Highly unlikely, when you have a whole family of PTZers right here who could remove a cyst and sac like that in their sleep)…or…
      3. He wasn’t a doctor?

      Who the heck knows?

      And the mystery continues…………………….

  5. unclelarry says:

    Nice payload! Some impressive swelling going on. Looks like he paid the doc a visit just in time. I believe I would have removed the bluetooth for the procedure. Thanks Winnie. Great post!

  6. It looks like he has a secondary infection going on as well. I imagine since the video is not complete we have missed a good portion of what happened.

  7. Someone get the smelling salts and revive the CO!!!
    Great find Winnie!!!

  8. OMG…WTH? No, no-o-o-o…tell me it isn’t so. Go back and giddit!

    Thanks for posting, Winnie; I’m sure they’ll go back and finish it.

    Properly. I hope. Gosh.

  9. That hypo has huge to start..We all know never push more than 2cc of anything into the tissue at one time…

    I thought he tried to pull the sac out prematurely, having quite a bit of matter left inside.

    Then I thought he “tucked it back in” thinking he was going to finish evacuating it..Then????

    What a lovely cyst Winnie, a winner, no doubt!.

  10. zittylover says:

    We are in the presence of a physician addicted to pus flowing sebaceous cysts!
    That’s why he gently handed the sack up into place!

  11. zittylover says:

    a doctor not a physician
    grrr google :)

  12. Oh, the secondary infection looked so very painful and dangerous!!! I hope the ER doctor took care of that as well. The cyst just poured nastiness out. I think he need to cut the sac out not pull it out or it would do damage to his face. I hope he obtained care so all of the swelling and pain came out. OUCH factor too big to enjoy the cyst.

  13. There was a second cyst growing closer to his eye that needed to be drined too. He was really swollen fron having both cyst right by his eye.
    Again my 1question is how do they let them get that bad?
    Since the dr stuck the sack back in we should get another pretty good infection on the return trip to get it taken care of.

  14. That poor guy! I’m not why the doc put the sac back in. Seeing the ending would have helped, but it was still great! Winnie, you are being a superstar!

  15. This kid has got to be related to Rocky Balboa, somehow!

    1. I know right! I mean my man looks like he has been in a cage match or had to defend a UFC tittle or something. That can’t be the doing of that one cyst!

  16. poor guy having to deal with those on his face! I am not sure why the doc put the sac back in…hopefully he removed it, and it just wasn’t filmed.

    great video! And I love that he wanted the scalpel…I’m thinking he’s planning some “self surgery” in the future.

  17. The mystery of the ages…that’s what this one is. I saw this on YT after reading one comment there, so I knew what was going to happen. Still, I had to watch it to believe…I can’t figure it out! Anyhow, I thank you, Winnie, once again! It if wasn’t for all these strange, unexplained ones, we wouldn’t appreciate all the perfect ones! This was interesting in any case. Good golly, I hope that guy got better. Looked like most of his face was involved!

  18. This time I don’t want to speculate why the sac is returned inside.
    I prefer to think about answering the award question which is:

    Why is it all the time BT headset on his ear?

    A) He is a police inspector and must be available 24 hours a day.
    B) He is a drug dealer and must be available 24 hours a day.

    What do you think the correct answer is? 8)

    1. I’m going with CEO of a burgeoning technology company who has to be available 24 hours a day.

  19. 3cysterscafe says:

    I think that the patient asking for the scalpel, the sac being stuffed back in and the sound going off when it did, are all related in a plot to do a DIY later when it fills back up. I dunno, doesn’t sound so far fetched to me!?!? Tehehe Hehehe……….Thanks for posting Winnie! :)

    1. 3cysterscafe, He asked for the scalpel at the very beginning, and I also thought at first that he wants to do later some little surgery on himself.

      Looking the second time I saw that it was asked with a bit dastardly smile that says like he plans something Illegal, perhaps it ,ay be just a little DIY surgery, but to me it looked more like a cheap opportunity to obtain an effective weapon, which he naturally saw in the right medical scalpel.

      Of course that looks can often tricks people, but that’s just me talking, for example, what role to give this guy to play in a movie. 8)

  20. great pus…this guys face reminds me of a boxer. I was like wtf was he putting the sac back in for????? So on the boxer theory, maybe he stuffed the sac back in there for a cushion for the next blow to the face….

  21. diamondgirl828 says:

    This made me sad. :( His face is so badly infected, his eye is all messed up. I do hope he went to a “professional” MD and had that infection properly seen about. How could a doctor do that? That is like sticking a rusty nail back into your foot. I hope dude is ok.

  22. ear-cyster says:

    What ????? He didn’t just put it back in; my eyes must be playing tricks on me. OMG…..

  23. What the hell??? This could have been a GREAT video, but… so many things went wrong:

    1) quality of the video – why is the camera moving back and forth? why is the cameraman filming the hands of the doctor and not the cyst?
    2) why is the doctor not removing the sac? did I miss any parts, or did he push it back inside??
    3) why are they not taking care of the rest of the zits/cysts/blackheads on the guy’s face?

    And finally, biiiig question: why is the guy not taking off his ear piece??????

    1. Sock Monkey says:

      Maybe he left his Bluetooth in because he is really Batman and he is waiting for an important call from the Commissioner. You never know how Batman would look after a close call with the Joker! ZING! ZAP! POW!

  24. Odd finish or not, I really liked this one. It’s going to the favorites file, @Winnie! Thanks for the great video and the delightful mystery.

  25. oh his swollen eye is making my eyes water….I hope there was a happy ending to that toherwise botched-looking procedure.

  26. What in the Hell was this doctor doing?! He must be a student.

  27. Great vid up until the time the doc started pushing the sac back into the guy’s face! I just hope there’s a follow-up it would explain so much! Also whether the other zits/cysts were dealt with!

  28. ThatSmellsLikeAss says:

    poor guy had cystic acne. im so thankful i barely had a zit in puberty. cant even believe he poked the sac back in there. i was like WTF?

  29. ThatSmellsLikeAss says:

    oh btw, there is no nerve right there to damage

  30. OK, let’s wait for round two!!!!

  31. comedoness says:

    WTH??? Very confusing at the end. Did the swelling under his eye get addressed? How about that large zit? Did the sac ever get removed? Did the guy get to keep the scalpel? So many questions…

    1. YEAH!!??
      Why didn’t doc pop that other one that was brewing??

    2. cheezewiz says:

      I bet the cyst under his eye was saved for an eye surgeon. I’m hoping that’s why the doc pushed the sac back in. To go find one! Hmmmmmm.

  32. Yes I agree they way the cyst wall was tucked back inside puzzles me, it looks pretty clear to me the way he tucked the cyst inside, first using the instument and then using his fingers to better place it inside the hole tells me he plans on it staying inside for some time.

    the cyst sack was large enough that he could have cut at least half off without any problem.

  33. Love it…maybe I’m strange, but I’m GLAD he tucked the cyst back in …. I’m ready for the sequel….LOL

  34. pashion4popin says:

    wow that’s quite the expansive infection to reach into the eye area like that! ouchie pouchie cyst. looks like he has a history of cystic acne alright.

  35. Perhaps the doctor pulled too much of his face out when pulling out the sac? The world will never know.

  36. Why is everyone freaking out about the sac “not being removed”? It looks to me like they stopped recording in the middle. The doc probably “put it back in” because he couldn’t get it small enough or loose enough to come out intact, and it looked like he was going back to work on it. Chill. Don’t assume facts not in evidence.

  37. he had such a massive infection going on, clearing that up was top priority. i’m sure that area was packed with antibiotic gauze, and he was put on either oral or iv antibiotics. it looked like cellulitis to me. i would let a plastic surgeon take care of removing the rest, since the involved area was so large..

    1. cheezewiz says:

      I agree.

  38. ZittyKitty says:

    Based on the info on the YouTube video, I did a little internet sleuthing and found this guy’s mug shot: http://mugshots.com/US-Counties/Oregon/Linn-County-OR/Craig-Keefer.6703329.html

    You can see the burgeoning cyst on this cheek!

  39. Gliss-PussBliss says:

    I bet the Doctor thought the sac was tissue or some other part of his face?

  40. Ummm…HELLO Doc! You need to remove the capsule. You are not stuffing a Christmas goose. Sheesh….The capsule is one of my favorite parts. Booooo

  41. WHY DID HE push the sac back into the incision?

  42. rainbowdust919 says:

    What the hell? Why did he put it back in there?!!

    1. Maybe he is a doctor in general medicine and would not want to ruin anything, but will let the surgeon to remove it. At first he maybe thought that’s an abscess.
      I do not know how it goes in the U.S. I thhink my young doctor also would not dare with a scalpel to separate cystic from healthy tissue, but she sent it to a surgeon or dermatologist.

  43. MistressOfSqueeze says:

    Yikes! That syringe was big enough for a horse–hey! Maybe this doc is in fact a veterinarian. That might explain his ineptitude in dealing with human skin problems.

  44. This entire thing seems wrong, wrong, wrong. The patient should have been on antibiotics for several days prior to the procedure to bring down some of the swelling. When he was trying to remove the sac, he was simply yanking at it. He could have simply snipped the bulk of it off if he didn’t care to explore the wound with the scalpel. This procedure should most definitely have been referred to either a plastic surgeon a/o an ophthamologist. I certainly hope that the doctor patched the guy’s eye until the effects of the local anasthetic wore off so that he didn’t inadvertantly scratch his cornea or get a foreign body in it. This entire episode should have been done differently.

  45. Doc shoulda popped the huge zit too before pain meds wear off
    N y is the eye swollen
    N wtf take off ur ear piece lol imagine taking a call at that time

  46. I am hoping he pushed it back in because he a) realised there was tissue or nerves or something attached or b) he decided it was too close to the eye and needed an eye specialist to do it or c) the guy needed antibiotics for a few days before attempting to drain it again… Anyway, I enjoyed watching the gunk he did get out so thank you for a great find!
