my bf has a tender lump near his rectum it is hard when you push on it and the last couple days has popped and white pus and little blood has came out. it doesn't hurt when he has a bowel movement but its in his crack so it hurts when he pushes on it or sits to long.we were wondering what it may be and if there was anything he can do to get rid of it

chewie07,

It is probably a pilonidal cyst. Once formed, these usually required drainage by a physician.

Since your boyfriend's is already hard, and draining, it may even need to be excised surgically.

He should probably see his physician. Good luck.
