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.

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 don't 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

My husband has a lump above his testicles in back below his buttocks. He also has been spiking fevers and painful to walk. What could this be?

Perineal lump: I am not clear where the lump is - but I am suspicious of prostate area and prostatitis, given symptoms. This is highly possible; also diabetic men can become infected in skin areas of scrotum and beneath because of plugged hair follicles; this could be present; he needs an exam asap and likely needs antibiotic treatment; he can bathe for comfort, too ...Read more

Unknown: A lump not growing is not likely a tumor, though should be watched. Could be scar tissue. Fertility can only be evaluated by a sperm count and if normal with the same lump would not be likely to change over time if the lump does not grow. Never assume low fertility ...Read more

Have had large lump under skin below top of bum crack. Never painful until I started pushing on it. Really painful now. No blood or pus just a lump!!

Get checked.: You may have had a sebaceous or pilonidal cyst. When you manipulated it, it may trigger an infection. Please see a doc to decide whether you need antibiotics or drainage of the cyst. If you have fever, marked increase in pain, or it rapidly increases in size, redness, or warmth, go to an ER or UC right away. ...Read more

Punched a person & car window about two weeks ago. X-rays show no fracture. There's a lump on the backside of my hand. Painful to move hand& swollen.

Punched a person & car window about two weeks ago. X-rays show no fracture. There's a lump on the backside of my hand. Painful to move hand& swollen.

Pretty Handy.: More than likely, your hand has suffered some soft tissue damage. If the x-rays were taken immediately after the altercation, a stress fracture may has been unable to detect at that time. This could contribute to the swelling you are having now. It may be to late for the therapeutic effects of RICE now. (Rest, ice, elevation and compression.) You can try moist heat. See a doctor if no improvement. ...Read more

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

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.?

Abscess forming: The skin on buttock is rather thick and abscesses generally take longer for the "head" to come to the skin. Your bf is having an abscess forming and thus should be seen--he may need it lanced and possible treatment with an antibiotic. It is really a pain in the _ _ _ but should be checked out. Good luck. ...Read more
