I have lump near tailbone. Do i need to worry ?

Hi, I have a small pea sized hard lump at the top of my bum crack . The lump itself doesn t hurt all the time, mostly just feels like my tail bone is bruised but can become so painful and uncomfortable that I can t even sit sometimes. The pain and uncomfortable part has been going on for about a year now. But i just noticed the lump a couple months ago. From when I found it, the lump hasn t changed size at all, but is always there pain or not. What is this lump?

hi,Many people have such type of lumps, mostly These lumps are Lypoma .Lypoma is tumoer of Fat.It is almost harmless & non cancerous.Lypoma may be painful or painless.If u want diagnose it then u should go for F.N.A.C of this lump in pathology. or If u r tumour is very painful then u should go to consult nearest General Surgeon. Otherwise leave it as it is. It will be harmless.

I have a very swollen tailbone- near the bottom of the tailbone there is a lump/ a swell. It is very uncomfortable and hurts to walk/lie down/sit down and is painful when i put any pressure on it. I have been taking painkillers which do take some of the pain away, but is this something that will go away on it s own or should i see a doctor?

In my 20s, I had been pushed very hard on to the wooden part of the arm (sofa) and had landed on my bottom. I had immediately after had experienced great pain, which I knew was my tail bone. I then went to the hospital due the pain and was unable to walk very well but was told at the Hospital that it was possible bruising and was given ibrophen tablets, eventually got better after a few weeks with plenty of rest and ibrophen tablets. However, Many years later in 1998. I had given birth to my son and had experiensed the same pain in the same area (coccyx ) and heard a poping sound in my lower back and felt pain afterwards. I was yet again in a lot of pain. I had found it difficult to look after my son. I had home help within my home; once a day two nurses had inserted pain killers up my bottom end due to the wicked pain I had experienced. I also had physiotherapy but can't remember how many times a week this was done at my home; Eventually this had also got better but unfortunately felt the same pain in my back and the tail bone, when I had my periods. In 2009 had gone for an examination for bowel cancer. Before I had gone to the hospital for the examination was sent some very powerful laxatives, to
empty my bowels. I had then yet again experienced the same servere pain in my tailbone but this time the pain has never gone away since. I have had MRI scans but the results came back as clear but still convinced that i have injuried my tailbone and lower back. It's difficult to keep still in the MRI scanes for a long length of time and wounded if this effected the results.

Hi, i had been sitting on my chair in the office for a long time, that too I would keep my legs on the CPU of the computer which was under the table. N I think the whole pressure must have gone on my tail bone coccyx. So from that time I have been getting pain. I have been trying to avoid sitting for a long time but at times there is little pain. What should I do? Do u think its serious
