Hi!
Is this lump right on your anal opening? What's the size of it? Does it feels small as a pea and solid on touch? What's its color? Do you find it more painful when you're passing stools? Have you noticed blood in your stool or on a toilet paper?
This lump could be a perianal haematoma, leak of blood just under the skin from the tiny blood vessels that can rupture when the anus stretches during the bowel movements. Haematomas, usually, do not need any treatment and in two weeks are getting painless and slowly start to shrink in size.
Do you have frequency of your bowel movements changed in time? Are you straining to move stool? Do you have chronic constipation or diarrhea?
You may have hemorrhoids( swollen or inflamed veins around the anus or inside the lower rectum.) Actually, you are probably having thrombosed external hemorrhoid that can be find as painful swelling or a hard lump around the anus that results when a blood clot forms. its symptoms, in most cases, will go away within a few days.
Hope i helped a bit!
Best regards!

Butt lump
I have this same thing right now going on with my body. A really wise old lady told me to eat plenty of raisins. I am doing this now and have done so in the past. Trust me it works. The first time this happened tho I had to go it it lanced. When the doc numbs the area it hurts really bad. Keep raisins in your diet.

I've had this before!
It's a cyst! I believe they are called Poly-natal cysts? Try googling them. Anyways- they are basically like huge puss/infection filled things just under your skin. You can try taking hot baths (as hot as you can stand) and hopefully it will come to a head and drain. Otherwise, like I had to have, the Dr had to lance it open and drain it. Thank goodness i havent gotten one there since- i know how bad they hurt Crying or Very sad Sometimes i get smaller ones and they just go away after a few days-

Butt lump
Hey,

I think i have something very similar, and yes it is rather embarresing.
It was very tender to touch, and just yesterday i went to the toilet and it must have popped, i looked into the toilet and it was just full of blood.
I was really worried i didnt know what to do and it is still bleeding but just weeping, so its not so heavy anymore.
Does anyone know what it could be?? Crying or Very sad Embarassed Sad

same symptoms I think
I think I have the same thing going on. I have had this lump just below and to the left of my tailbone for around 4 or 5 years and it would get sore for a day or two, nothing big though, not alot of swelling and just go away. But this week it is really sore, swollen and red. I've had no drainage as of yet. Alot of the posts I've read around other forums mention drainage alot. Wondering if what I have is different or is just not ready to drain or maybe it will not. I have tried to make several doctor appointments but nobody will take me because I am a new patient I suppose. At least this is what they tell me. Putting off going to the ER because it is so expensive and cannot really afford that right now.
So yeah, just chiming in I guess. It has also caused me to have gotten little sleep the past 3 nights. Hopefully this will go away on it's own with little or no treatment. Plan to keep area very, very clean and try several other techniques that I've read about. Thanks.

Question..
I woke up today and was scratching my left butt cheek when I felt a lump. Near the end of the cheek. If I stand up its on the lower part of the cheek close to where the cheeks touch. I cant really see it.. I would say that its about the size of a peanut. It kinda hurts when I press on it.. its getting uncomfortable to sit since I sit directly on the lump. I dont have any idea what this could be. I dont know if this is related but the last couple of days my feces have been green.. I think thats about it.. If anyone could help that would be more than awesome.. Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed

But lump
Lump sounds like a pimple - but if worried get a doc to look at it. Green pooh - been eating fruitloops? Bile is green - so if you are producing too much bile it will turn your pooh green. Don't eat too much fat. That causes you to produce more bile. I am not a medial proffessional - I just know a lot.

Sad this butt lump is ruining my sex life!!! this morning, i farted and it leaked pus! ewwwwww! i read on other forums that ur supposed to get to a point where it drains, so i tried to prod it towards that direction but it just got painfull uggg i really have to get rid of it cuz my mother is coming for thanksgiving and shes a doctor and she alwauys insists on fully inspecting my body and this is REALLY embarassing, please help meee

Your problem
Lissa,

If it is greenish in color, it could be melanoma and you should have it checked out. My wife's uncle had that and it is no joked. He didn't go to the doctor and it was a completely treatable form of skin cancer. Instead he shrugged it off and 7 months after everyone was trying to get him to go see a Doc, he was breathing his last breath...if it doesnt go away in a week, go see someone.

Wow, hard to believe others are also having a similarly embarrassing problem. I noticed a hard lump, about the size of a large marble, to the left side of my anus yesterday. After swabbing it in rubbing alcohol I gently squeezed it and some pinkish liquid came out of what might be a hair follicle pore. NASTY! I do have hemmorroids from my first pregnancy (not a pleasant delivery of a 10 Lb baby by a small hipped person). I also am often constipated. It was somewhat irritating to sit today. Do you think this is a cyst or an internal hemmorroid filled with God knows....I hate to guess? Should I be taking Metameucil (I am a nutritionist and do eat a lot of whole grains, fr & veggies but still suffer from spastic bowel. Should I have this thing lanced? I did notice redness and swelling at the site. Pleased to receive any INFORMED MEDICAL advice. Thank you for your assistance.

Could this be a cyst or cancer also?
Three weeks ago I had a bump on my buttock and I was wondering if it were cancer. What are some things to look for because so far it first appeared red and hurt and I picked at it and scraped some of the lump down some clear fluid came out after doing so and it went down slightly but now I noticed next to the irregular red area where the original lump is slightly discolored I am quite young but I am genetically at risk for colon cancer I believe so is this worth going into the doctor for because now it does not hurt but I feel concerned as it is also a little bit shiny but It is hard for me to look at so I cannot be sure.

small bump
Hi, I also have a small bump on the inside rim of my anus. The first time I noticed this was about 2 days ago. I've recently had constipation where I was straining to push it out. and before all that, i'd say about a week ago, I had some tiny rectal bleeding. I heard that if you over strain yourself thats what happens, so I dont think this is linked in anyway. The bump is tender but I have noticed a decrease in pain over the last day. I've recently been drinking a lot of water, seeing that I gave up soft drinks, so my bowl movements are becoming more frequent. any input would be helpful since I dont really see this as a hemorrhoid but maybe just a haematoma

bump
I have similar problems with a bump right on the top of my butt crack. Its been there for about a year and it gets very very sore from time to time. It also will drain water and pus alot, and every now and then it bleeds. I have not gone to the doctor yet but i might soon if it does not go away. Any one found anything that works?

My girlfriend had this same thing about a year ago. Started as a soreness a couple inches above her anus and not on the surface, more inside/under, around the tailbone. She asked me to look at it, and there wasn't anything obviously strange or abnormal, but when I pressed around the area, some puss did come out of a tiny hole. She saw a couple doctors who checked for lumps inside (cancer or hemmorhoids). Fortunately that was negative. Once doctor recognized it and said that a lot of military pilots used to get them (not sure why he said that or why I remember it except that it seemed odd). He prescribed some medication and it went away and never came back. It was a little uncomfortable for her to sit for some time, but nothing horrible.

Anyone still expereincing the lump/bump etc described in these posts should see their doctor and ask. I had the same problem, recurring over a couple years and would expereince a large lump that sometimes drained a watery substance and on occasion, when squeezed would emit a thick, foul-smelling pus. In my case (and I suspect in a lot of others as described above) it was a condition know as a py-rectal sinus - not sure if I've used the correct spelling. This condition is harmless other than the discomfort/embarassment. I'm not a medical professional so the first step for everyone should be to consult a physician just to be on the safe side. If it is determined to be a py-rectal sinus you can use a very hot compress along with gentle squeezing to help it drain. Afterward, be sure to clean very well and use a sterile cotton swab to apply rubbing alcohol or peroxide to help get rid of the infection
