Another day, another cyst-popping video to put you off your lunch.

This time Jason's in the hot seat and decided to pop his cyst using a drawing pin. Yes, a drawing pin.

Jason has been trying to rid by his wrist cyst for some time, and even has his very own dedicated YouTube channel, but the b***tard just keeps coming back.

"I popped my ganglion wrist cyst with a thumbtack. It was the biggest it has ever been and was getting to the point where it was painful. My wife hammered it into my skin and out came the gross fluid."

According to the NHS, a ganglion cyst is a fluid-filled swelling that usually develops near a joint or tendon. The cyst can range from the size of a pea to the size of a golf ball.

Ganglion cysts look and feel like a smooth lump under the skin. They're made up of a thick, jelly-like fluid called synovial fluid, which surrounds joints and tendons to lubricate and cushion them during movement.

We wouldn't suggest trying this at home, for hygiene reasons. If you've got a troublesome cyst, visit your GP.
