I have a blue lump on my buttocks. It doesn't hurt but i've had it for a couple of years. Should've worried?

Hemangioma: A blue lump can be several things and should be examined by a plastic surgeon or dermatologist, especially if it has grown or changed in any way. It could be a tumor of blood vessels, a lipoma (fatty tumor), or even a large mole. Have it looked at for your peace of mind. Be well, dr. Fred. ...Read more

Probable lipoma: What you are describing sounds like a very common and usually totally innocent lumbosacral lipoma. You should have it checked by your primary care provider who can refer you to a surgeon if there is any concern. These can usually be removed easily as an outpatient under local anesthesia. ...Read more

The only: way to know is to see a doctor, examining the lesion is the most important part of diagnosis but if I want to take a guess I would say you have an infected Pilonidal cyst which is a pile of ingrown hair. ...Read more

Found a swollen immobile lump roughly 1.5cm in length at the rear junction of my buttocks and thigh. What could it possibly be?(I'm 24yrs old)

Epidermoid cyst: This benign cyst, aka epidermal inclusion cyst, is the most common skin cyst. It typically occurs in areas of little/no hair, such as you describe, though it originates from hair follicle. It is usually filled with malodorous "cheese like" material. Rarely they become inflamed/infected. They don't require treatment; if inflamed a doctor may inject trimancinolone (a steroid) or surgically remove ...Read more

I have a lump on my lower back above the buttocks, is cancer ? Its painless, im really worried

Probably not: It depends on your age and exact other symptoms. Pilonidal cysts are quite common in this location, but they usually have hair or drainage associated with them. Is it a mass? Is it soft and pliable? Could be a lipoma. If it is hard, irregular borders, and immobile, that is more concerning. Probably should get it looked at. ...Read more

Inside my buttocks I have a sensitive lump but there is no pus in it and it came my last period at this time also. What is it?

Pilonidal cyst: A pilonidal cyst is an abnormal pocket originating in the skin that usually contains hair, skin debris and other abnormal tissue. A pilonidal cyst is almost always located near the tailbone at the top of the cleft of the buttocks. The term "pilonidal" comes from the latin words for hair ("pilus") and nest ("nidus"). The only sure way to remove this type of cyst is surgery. ...Read more
