Hi,

I have discovered a lump underneath my butt cheek on the inside of my left leg. (kinda up from my anal passage and down from my vagina)
It's solid and moves (the area isn't inflamed)this is the first time I've became aware of it - i haven't felt it before however it does concern me.
I am 25 and keep good health - no unexpected aches and pains.
I gave birth 3 years ago and developed a white discharge that comes and goes (I was informed this is normal in some mothers after giving birth) however their is a fine (very minimal ) trace of blood through it this evening.
Any suggestions what this lump maybe?? are the 2 things linked?
Thanks

Hello,

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. This small bump can be infected hair follicle or a boil. A Boil is caused by an infection of the hair follicle by staph aureus. Apply warm compresses on the bump and keep the area clean. You should consult a doctor as you might need a course of antibiotics/anti-inflammatories to take care of the same.

Other possibilities are of a cyst, sebaceous cyst, lipoma (fatty deposits) ,fibroma (fibrous tissue deposits) or an external hemorrhoid.

A gynecologist’s examination is mandatory to confirm the diagnosis. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
