Dr. Pimple Popper Helps a Man Treat an Avocado-Sized Hand Lipoma

• In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper helps a man diagnose a massive growth on his hand.

• The patient speculates that the growth is a lipoma, but the clip doesn't make his diagnosis clear.

• Dr. Pimple Popper posted the clip ahead of her show's season premiere tonight on TLC.

If Dr. Pimple Popper's steady output of daily Instagram videos and YouTube clips hasn't been enough to satisfy your "popaholic" needs, you're in luck: Her show returns to TLC tonight (9/8 central), and it's already clear that she saved some of her best material for the big reveal.

In a new Instagram post, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka, dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—reveals a patient who came to see her about a massive and highly alarming growth on his hand. The patient says he's been told by other doctors that it looks like a lipoma, which is hard to argue with if you've seen some of Dr. Pimple Popper's other videos depicting lipoma removals.

(Lipomas, it's worth noting, are simply growths under the skin that are typically the result of a large proliferation of fat cells, according to MedicalNewsToday. They occur in about 1 percent of the population, and they tend to be benign. But as that article also notes, they also tend to be relegated to the shoulders, chest, neck, thighs, and armpits.)

The clip cuts off before Dr. Pimple Popper makes it clear whether or not she agrees—for that answer, it looks like you'll just have to watch tonight.
