I've had a lump at top of my bum crack it has been there 3 months now and was small to start with now is slighty bigger. It itches now and then but no pus as it's under my skin. It's only tender if I wear a thong which aggitates it more. I do suffer with cysts and boils usually In my armpits and groin this has been since I was 21 I'm now 34. Worried about cancer so much as never can tell with the amount I get on my body sometimes but this one on top of butt crack is worrying me as never had one here before. Thank u x
Symptoms like persistent fever, weight loss, night sweats along with multiple enlarged, painless lymph âââânodes may indicate conditions like lymphoma or cancer. âBut it is less likely, that the lump can be a âcancer in your case, since you are young and might not be having such issues.â
The description of the lump and the location, indicates it to possibly a collection of fat tissue also called âa Lipoma. Other âpossible causes include a sebaceous cyst.
In case of lipoma, it can be excised with a small surgical procedure, OR in case of a cyst, it can be âreduced in size âwith a needle aspiration or removed completely by excising it.
