I have a hard lump right in the middle of my left cheek.

Customer Question

I have a hard lump right in the middle of my left butt cheek. It's been there for years and I always forget to ask the doctor about it when I go in for other things. It's occasionally a bit sore if I press on it, but for the most part I never notice it.
What could this lump be?

Forgot to add...bump is probably the size of pea from a diameter perspective.

Hi there ...

This could be enlarged lymph node and stable size without any other symptoms indicates that this is benign and not harmful , so nothing to worry about that lupm .

Good luck .

Positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks .

Is there anything else it could be (cysts or such)?
Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 1 year ago.

It is highly unlikely the cyst as this is not the location for cyst , lymph node is highly likely the possibility .

Good luck .

Positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks .
