Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

It will be very helpful for me in understanding your condition better if you could answer some of these questions:

1)     Is the lump soft to touch or hard in consistency?
2)     Is the lump accompanied by any thickenings in areas of pressure?
3)     Is the lump mobile to touch?
4)     Is the lump present in the butt crack or close to the anus?
5)     Are you having a history of constipation or do you have soft stools?
6)     Are you having any fatigue and tiredness as well?
7)     When was you last menstrual period and did you get a serum HCG tets done?
8)     Are you having any blood in stools?

Please get back with the answers to these questions so that it can help me in chalking out a list of differentials.

Hello XXXXXXX

My sincere apologies for the delay. As you've mentioned that the lump is hard in consistency, possibly it is arising from the bone.

It makes sense to do further tests like a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis to know the exact nature of the lump.

A biopsy (in which a small tissue of the lump is taken) may also be required for confirmation of the diagnosis.

I suggest you to go ahead with these tests to determine the cause.

Please do consult a general surgeon for the same. I sincerely hope this helps.

Take care.

Regards,

Hello,

Thanks for writing back again.

It is not a sort of an emergency but definitiely it needs to be looked into as early as possible.

You need to consult a general surgeon/ orthopedic surgeon and discuss these investigations with him. He will examine the lump and get these investigations done.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.
