Yes: This is a common area where bug bites or hair follicles may become breeding grounds for staph or other germs that will form an abscess. If you can sit on a heating pad for an extended period or over several hours you may get it to raise to the skin and drain. If not, it may need to be drained by your doc. ...Read more

Why won't someone tell me what's wrong with me. Help night sweats 100 fever always hair falling out sore on head. Legs heavy painful. Can't catch breath always tired. Memory going. Pain lump on shoulder?

Multiple complaints: Whenever I have a patient with nondescript symptoms I ask them to monitor and record their data. Hence, I would ask you to take your temp, photograph your hair loss and the lump, and I would objectively quantify your memory performance with cognitive testing.
Also, several of the symptoms you relate can be caused by the Lortab you take. Please speak with the prescribing physician about it. ...Read more

A largish, soft lump on my butt cheek isn't bothersome, but if it needs surgical excision, what are practical considerations for stitches, etc.?

Soft tissue lump: This is most likely a lipoma but it is best to have it examined by your PCP to confirm. Dependent on where it is located on the buttock - pressure from sitting can sometimes cause the wound to open so that more permanent (nonabsorbable) sutures would be used to try to keep this from occurring. If it is less then 3-4 cm then it typically can be closed with an absorbable suture. ...Read more

A boil/lump appeared on my butt-cheek under skin 4 yrs ago n left untreated. Nw it has grow to a ping pong ball size n hard. What it could be? M 22yrs

Hard to tell...: ...would need more detail or a picture. Given how long it's been there, my best guess is either a sebaceous cyst (not dangerous although at times they can become infected), or a lipoma (a collection of fat cells, not dangerous). you should be evaluated by a doctor if the lump is tender, is draining fluid, and/or is warm to touch. Particularly if it is located right next to your anus. ...Read more

I do not know: At your age, cancer would be unlikely, but the definitive diagnosis is made with a biopsy. Sounds more like a sebaceous cyst or a lipoma, but as stated, see the Dr. And get a therapeutic excisional biopsy. Best wishes. ...Read more

What to do if I have a small lump on my right butt cheek. Could it be cancer?

Rare: The majority of lesions that develop in the buttock are lipomas from the fat present. These are non tender and usually just under the skin. In rare instances sarcomas develop which are firm lesions, can grow relatively quickly and are usually large when identified because there are deeply seated. If such is present a bx is indicated followed by a radical gluteal resection to encompass it. ...Read more
