A sebaceous cyst?: A painless walnut-sized bump noticeable at erection could represent a asymptomatic sebaceous cyst, which usually needs no active care as long as being comfortable mentally and physically. Nonetheless, it is still hard to draw right conclusion without a direct look at and feel on it. To have the health-related things for good care done correctly, go to http://formefirst.

What's the difference in abscess's and large fluid collection, in pelvis, are abscess's and fluid collection the one and the same???

Not necessarily: An Abcess is a walled off area of infection. Fluid collections can be anything, they have different characteristics on the imaging and treated differently.

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

My son was diagnosed with appendicitis the results of it. He had an abscess on his pelvis blocking his bowel and bladder will he hve any future health?

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. Which could make child a bit more prone to obstruction down the road, but if good surgical technique and debridement done, unlikely! ...Read more

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

Pearly penile papule: Without a direct look at, it would be hard to tell what these may be, but they could represent the common occurrence of pearly penilepapules (PPP) or ectopic sebaceous glands (not hair follicle-related).
