What causes skin growth on buttocks oozing pus?
Last week, I started to smell something and realized it was coming from the growth. There was a very sligh discharge gradually ozzing out of the growth. The growth has had a head, like a pimple for several years but I never noticed a discharge. I proceeded to apply pressure and eventually drained the entire growth. The discharge was a very potent smelling, vanilla in color with the texture of perhaps toothpaste.
The area seems to be healing very well and I'll probably mention it to a doctor sometime in the future. I assume it must have been a Lipoma. Could it reoccur in the same location? Are these hereditary? My mother had one removed from the middle of her back many years ago also.
These are not hereditary.
The one which you pressed with and well explained like a text-book picture is a sebaceous cyst.
If the whole material along with its inner lining is also extruded, there is no chance of a recurrence, be assured .
If the lining remains inside and is viable, you may get a recurrence and can be easily excised in-toto ( total) and cured.
So nothing to worry and just wait and watch.
