I have this same thing. It is very small and only hurts when I use the rest room. The pain usually doesn't persist. Is surgery something I should really consider? I am only 25, could this be anything else? What is this caused from?
It could be an abscess, an area where pus and other fluids have collected. It sounds a lot worse than it really is, its removal only take minor surgery to drain the region and you'll be back on your feet. However, they may refer you to a surgeon to find the root of the problem. Please see a medical professional as soon as possible
