It looks more like a forming abscess in the gluteal region. It is not related to cancer.
Doctor would advise a course of antibiotic and if needed may suggest drainage.

And don't worry about doctor being male, doctors routinely handle such cases and they make you feel comfortable about this.

Hope this answers your question.
