Viewers are grossed out as a man with a 'unicorn bump' gets the pus removed in ...

A man with a large 'unicorn bump' on his forehead had the pus-filled growth removed during a stomach-churning episode of Dr Pimple Popper that was so graphic it put people off their food.

Speaking on the show, Art, who is from California, revealed that he had been living with the large cyst for nine years, admitting that he had always been too scared to go to the doctors and get it properly diagnosed and treated.

However he chose to visit Dr Sandra Lee in order to finally discover what the 'unicorn bump' was - with the celebrity dermatologist choosing to cut into the growth in order to confirm that it was a cyst as she had suspected. 

There, things took a turn for the gruesome, with viewers at home treated to a very graphic procedure filled with plenty of pus - which Dr Lee compared to 'mashed potatoes when you add too much water'.
