Perianal abscess: This is most likely a perianal abscess. You can think of it sort of like a pimple. It's basically a gland that gets clogged and then infected with bacteria. Don't worry, it usually doesn't have anything to do with hygeine. Try sitting in a warm bath with epsom salts to help soften up the area. If it gets worse, sometimes it needs to be surgically drained. ...Read more

Found a lump in upper buttocks. very deep, very painful.growing quickly.can hardly walk. found another one on my hip.Dr said its lipoma.I don't agree.

Mass: Lumps must be biopsied and sent to pathlogy for definitive diagnosis. Lipomas (benign fatty tumors) are common, they sometimes need a course of antibiotics and pain meds to calm down the inflammation. Neuromas are lumps that grow on nerves. I dont know about why you are having difficulty walking. Perhaps you need to see a general surgeon to get a second opinion on biopsy. ...Read more

I had Rocephin (ceftriaxone) injected into buttocks area yesterday. I have 2 lumps that are painful. Is the medication stuck? I'm supposed to take Keflex now!

Not stuck: Whenever you inject antibiotics you have the potential to get a little swelling in the area. Sometimes you have some bleeding which will form a hematoma and be hard. This is not like a blood clot in veins and is rarely more than uncomfortable. Over time the clotted blood will become liquid again and be absorbed. May or may not have visible bruise. If redness and warmth at site let provider know. ...Read more

I had two shots of Rocephin (ceftriaxone) above each of my hips near my buttocks. I still have two painful NOT red lumps deeply embedded. What can I do to heal it?

Rocephin (ceftriaxone): This antibiotic is given by deep intramuscular injection or IV. When given by injection it goes in the deep muscles usually of the buttocks. There it may cause localized bleeding of the muscle causing the lumps you feel. These are usually absorbed by the body. Sometimes they calcify, most likely on patients who have had multiple shots in the buttock. There is really nothing to do but time. ...Read more

There is a huge painfull lump inside buttock cheek of my boyfriend. Its hard and maybe 2 inches or more long and maybe 1 inch wide.No head.?

Hard lump under skin on buttock - I noticed this when showering and is sore when touched. Doesn't move and is smooth. What could it be?

It depends on....: The type of symptoms and finding on physical examination can give a clue to the cause of this lump. Since it is tender, it may be due to skin infection(a boil). In this case the skin on the surface may be read and warm to touch. If it is hard and not much tender it could be something more chronic. Either way you should show it to your doctor unless it starts to settle down and resolves within 1 wk ...Read more
