I have had a hard pea-sized lump under my skin on my bum for at least 2 yrs - what can it be?

Probably nothing: Hello Kasia,

This may be a lipoma (fatty tumor) or a sebaceous cyst. To be sure, have your doctor look at it at your next appointment. Chances are it's nothing to worry about unless it is enlarging or painful.

Best wishes,

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 circular lump (1.5-2cm diameter) in my buttock for around 6 months. It is completely painless. Skin colour. It is smooth. It Just got slightly big. I can push it.

Show to your doctor: Lumps under the skin that are painless, slowly enlarge over time, and can be moved around (mobile) are likely to be a lipoma (fatty tumor) or cyst (sebaceous cyst for instance). Lumps at the surface of the skin can include moles and skin cancers. Any masses should be brought to the attention of your doctor. He/she can determine if it should be watched or treated by excision/biopsy. ...Read more
