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

2-3 possibilities: You could have a lymph node, cyst or possibly a dental sinus. If you have not seen your dentist for a while it is worth having your teeth checked to make sure you do not have a cavity that is causing the dental sinus. In addition you need to see your general doctor. ...Read more
