Hello

I can look at a picture here.

A lipoma [fatty tumor] is possible, sometimes they are painful.

A sebaceous cyst is likely, these are painful and must be removed.

A boil

An abscess.

You will need an exam.

OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. Also, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, just use reply and come back. I am here

Thanks for this question

The most common cause of this if it was after a bowel movement would be an infarcted hemorrhoid

Do you have a picture of the area?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
