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

Recurring sharp pain building up to last for about a minute under my left cheek bum. Is this a disc problem or a thigh problem, or more serious?

Yes and no: Likely from the pyriformis muscle which can be from strain or from the sciatic nerve which frequently runs through the middle of the muscle. If you are driving distances, keep your foot on the same side as the buttocks pain (likely left), in the 12 o'clock position and see if the pain improves.

Probably not herpes: This doesn't sound like herpes. A recurrent herpes outbreak could occur in a skin crease, but it's not typical. And a first herpes outbreak would be at the site of inoculation, i.e. direclty on the genitals, usually with multiple lesions. Finally, deeper lesions typically are folliculitis, pimples, etc (think of them as starting "in" the skin), whereas herpes is superficial ("on" the skin). ...Read more

After 3 weeks off with a bad lower back I have pain in left bum cheek also a change in bowel habit with nausea and headaches. Is thjs from my back.?

Read answer: "bad back pain", "pain in left bum cheek" (radiculopathy or sciatica), along with problems with bowel or bladder control places a condition known as cauda equina syndrome in the differential diagnosis. The nausea and headache can be due to worsened back pain if that is the case. Although rare & unlikely, the condition is often missed & diagnosed after permanent damage has set in. ...Read more
