Large painless bump below butt cheeks. Noticed change in bump's size according to diet. Any ideas?

Good evening. Iv e had a large lump just below my right butt cheeks for years. It s painless, but, depending on what I eat, it could feel irritated. Also depending on my diet , it could enlarge or reduce in size. For example, when I fast or cleanse, it has reduced in size considerably but hasn t completely disappeared. I feel that if I had fasted or cleansed my body longer it would have completely disappeared. What is this??? I m ready for it to go for good. Thank you in advance. -PJ

hello pj,,
painless bump since years with no other symptoms are usually lipomas,fibromas,etc..i dont think the size of bump varies with food and that too so immediately..the size and feel might change with position...these swellings which do not change for years are usually harmless unless change in size,pain,change in consistency,immobile etc.
anyways better get it checked with a surgeon and follow drs advice to be free from tension..bye take care
