In brief: Poss pilonidal cyst

Hard to say exactly what this is but one possibility is a pilonidal cyst.
These can become infected so best to see your doctor to confirm the diagnosis.

In brief: Cyst

Sounds like a cyst or abscss.
You can try warm compresses, but usually these will need to be drained by a doctor.
