A doctor was met with exploding pus as he squeezed a nasty cyst on a man's neck. 

 Dr Michael Lewis, who runs his own clinic in Woodland Hills, California, donned his purple gloves as he tackled the nasty mass.

Pus can be seen oozing out of the hole in the unnamed man's neck after an incision was made using surgical tools.

Using his fingers, Dr Lewis applied pressure to both sides of the cyst. So much so that the liquid nearly hit the camera. 

'It's one of my favourite things to do' 

Dr Lewis, who graduated from medical school in 2005, said: 'I have always enjoyed performing procedures - It is one of my favorite things to do.

'I perform multiple procedure weekly from simple things like cleaning out ear wax and joint injections to removal of masses on the skin.

'Nothing bothers me too much as far as procedures go, however if the smell is bad, it can be really tough.' 

It is believed that the unidentified patient was suffering from a common cyst, known as an epidermoid cyst.

WHAT ARE CYSTS? 

Cysts are noncancerous, closed sac-like structures that can be filled with fluid, pus or other materials.

They are common and can appear anywhere on the skin.

Cysts can develop as a result of infection, clogging of the sebaceous (oil) glands or around foreign bodies, such as earrings.

They are round, dome-shaped bumps that tend to be yellow or white in colour.

Usually painless, they can become tender, sore and red if infected.

Most cysts disappear on their own, but some may need to be drained to relieve pain.

Self-treatment by squeezing or popping the cyst yourself is not advised as it could exacerbate the underlying cause. 

These are made up of wet skin cells, giving it a 'cheesy' appearance when popped. This is often accompanied by a pungent aroma. 

What does Dr Lewis do? 

Dr Lewis decided to leave mainstream medicine and set up his own clinic where he could provide the kind of care he was passionate about.

He said: 'As a family practice physician, we are taught to treat all ailments, I used to deliver babies but I don't do that anymore.

'I left the bureaucratic trap of corporate medicine so that I can provide the type of medicine that people desire.

'I also wanted to return back to the principles that I went to medical school in the first place - compassionate care, healing and relationships.'

Dr Lewis added: 'Therefore part of my practice is treating lumps and bumps.' 

Other disgusting videos 

It comes after MailOnline reported on a squeamish video of a man who underwent a surgical procedure to force his eyeball to move about in its socket.

Doctors in Brazil carried the procedure out to test his eye movements after the man, who remained unidentified, suffered a nasty fall.
