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

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

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

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

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
