removing stopper from bathroom sink

The 'stopper' is stuck in my bathroom sink....the metal one. It is no longer attached to the lever that raises and lowers it. It is so tight water will not seep out. Any way to remove this without removing pipe?

Remove the screw ring that holds the stopper in place and wiggle a flathead screwdriver around.

Yep exactly as houston said under the sink were the lever sticks out unscrew it and put in screwdriver if the lever is still intact simply reach under and push up or down on lever and get it to open.
