Have a bump on perineum. No pain. Colon cancer runs in family. Related?

Hi, about a week and a half ago i noticed a small bump on my perineum ,under my skin near my anus , while showering. Not really any pain at all. Now it is slightly larger in size, only discomfortable if/when pressure is applied. It feels like a small mass of fat; semi firm. It is about the size of a small bean. I am very worried about this as colon cancer runs in my family. I am only 23, but still very worried. What should I do from here?

colon cancer in family not related to your present symptoms. Bump in skin may be due to staph infection, or may be simple lipoma. increase in size is the history to be given importance. In case of any doubt you may have to get a tissue biopsy from that area. clinical examination is necessary, please consult dermatologist.
