Have small, hard painless lump on butt cheek for months. How to remove it?

I have a small pimple size lump on my right butt cheek. It doesn t feel like a pimple, it s hard under the skin and is completely painless. it s been there for several months now and doesn t bother me at all. My husband just notices it all the time which reminds me it s there. Should I be concerned? I always assumed it was a pimple but am realizing now it can t be popped and it s never going away.

Dermatologist 's  Response

I would be pleased to answer your question .

Your lumps could be Fibrosis , Dermatofibroma , Hypertrophic scar or folliculitis .
I would suggest that you should visit a Dermatologist who will examine the area and rule out the above differential diagnosis. Please do get it checked as it has been existing at the site for a couple of months as you have mentioned .
Thanks and take care
