How does fluid and abscess accumulate in the pelvis, pelvic area.... is there lots of reasons for this? Male patient
Many reasons: There are several ways yes. Diverticulitis (little sac out-pouchings in the colon) can rupture and lead to this. Irritation anywhere in the pelvis can lead to fluid and or abscess. The list does go on. These things can resolve spontaneously...but do sometimes require CT guided or US guided drainage. ...Read more

Go see the Doctor: There is a common problem called a sebaceous cyst that is not an infection and not a boil. A boil, a pus filled irritated lesion, is usually an infection and requires treatment. If the 'boil' does not hurt then we may worry this is syphilis. Any way all of the above conditions need to be diagnosed by a physician with an examination. ...Read more

Abcess appendix: Sorry to hear about your little gut. While his immediate recovery may take a bit longer because of rupture, there is usually not much else long term that could be problematic. Sometimes there is a bit more scar tissue in the area from a ruptured appendix.

I'm getting Abscess' in Groin area, Could it be from Inflammatory Bowel Disease??? Tired of getting lanced near my penis/testicles at the ER, thanks!
Maybe: Although IBD can cause groin abscesses (Crohn's or Behcet's more so than UC) a more likely cause is hidradenitis--or more simply, infected sweat glands. Abscesses may need drainage, and sometimes more extensive surgery is needed (unroofing, skin grafts, etc.) but oftentimes daily washing with a topical antibacterial soap may reduce the incidence of abscess formation. MRSA is also a common cause. ...Read more
