Lump Inside Bum Cheek
Hard lump inside my left bum cheek which kind of felt like it had a tube/swollenvein leading to my anus can this be related to my external hemmoroid?
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
