Episode Guide

Episode 6 - Series 7

In the clinic Dr Christian helps a man get treatment for a super sore penis and a woman whose bottom cyst had left her wanting ‘more junk in her trunk’.

Our rebuild you strand continues as we meet Sharon. When she hit 50 her breasts expanded to an enormous size L, but the rest of her body didn’t grow with them. They now hinder every basic aspect of her life from eating to washing to walking. Can a colossal removal job and physio get her walking tall again?

The Magaluf boys are back in Blighty and the results are in, as Dr Christian serves up over 2000 shots of vodka – just one of the shocking hangovers on the week of body wrecking binging. And at the truck Dr Dawn helps a young man whose chronic head to toe skin condition covers his entire body, and a woman whose tight vagina makes sex unbearable.

Is it dangerous to remove a mole yourself with apple cider vinegar? There is a lot about this online but can't find and doctors advice on it, the mole in question is raised but is normal and has not changed in size or colour at all just in a place it gets caught with clothing or my nails a lot, thanks
