  • On Wednesday, following the series finale of her TLC television show, Dr. Pimple Popper shared a series of images on social media illustrating the surgery she did on a man with a cancerous growth on his head.

  • Dr. Sandra Lee wrote that the growth is a keratoacanthoma.
  • The growth was not life-threatening.

  • To treat the patient, Lee cut the growth out of his head, which left a large hole that she repaired with sutures.

The latest season of Dr. Pimple Popper's TLC television show may be over, but she's still posting so-gross-you-can't-look-away images to her Instagram account. On Wednesday, Dr. Pimple Popper, also known as Dr. Sandra Lee, shared a series of images that showed her work on a patient with skin cancer.

The swollen and red bump is a skin condition called keratoacanthoma. Lee said these kinds of smaller carcinomas aren't life-threatening but "can certainly grow rather quickly and can therefore be scary to the patient."

To treat the bump, Lee did a minor surgery in the area, which resulted in a hole in the patient's head (scroll through at your own risk).

Following the procedure, Lee said that she used sutures to close up the hole. She also shared a picture of the clean straight scar going down the back of the patient's head.

The last image in the series shows his head after a bit of healing, when the scar is basically non-existent.

"He healed really well from it," Lee wrote.
