On my bum cheek i have a painless lump for like over 2-3 months or actually maybe even a year and its normal colour. Should i be worried?

On my bum cheek i have a painless lump for like over 2-3 months or actually  maybe even a year  and its normal colour. Should i be worried?

Probably not: Painless lumps are often cysts or lipomas (abnormal fatty growth), sometimes a lymph node (unlikely in that location). If the lump is not bothering you, it is safe to do nothing, as long as nothing changes, like it is getting bigger, painful, or changes in the overlying skin. A surgeon can easily remove cysts or lipomas as an outpatient, if that will give you peace of mind. Very rarely a cancer. ...Read more

I have a small lump the size of a pea underneath my right but cheek it's quite hard and is attached to the skin any idea what it could be?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. However, if there are no symptoms and it is not a cosmetic issue, you may wait and watch. If the lesion doubles in size or additional lesions appear, it would be prudent to see a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

I squeezed a hard lump that was on the bottom of my son's right butt cheek. An extremely sticky green substance came out and I have no idea why.Help?

Skin infection: It sounds like there was a skin infection there with a pocket of pus. You drained it. The stuff that came out was pus--how the body fights germs. It needs to heal more, so warm packs on it will help speed that up. Talk to your son's doctor who will decide if you need an antibiotic, more drainage, or just watching it.
