Hi there ...

Thank you for the question ..

I am sorry to hear about your issues ...

As you have had cancer removed at same point , and this recent hot spot could be small abscess which need evaluation .

It would be ideal for you to have X ray hand to localize lesion exactly and to decide what to do next .

As you have abscess on Butt also , so this could also be abscess .

Please proceed as I advised you .

Good luck .

Do you have any more questions?
