I had a large lump on the inside of my butt cheek and when I sat down today it busted open. A bloody puss type of fluid came out what could it be?

In brief: 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 only sure treatment for a pilonidal cyst is surgery.

In brief: Butt problem

You had an abscess on your butt which popped and drained.
Take care of yourself and hopefully this will not recur.
