Lump above buttock near tailbone, pain on sitting, walking, pus, bleeding. Causes for symptoms?

I have a lump at the top of my butt crack near the tailbone. The first day it was somewhat annoying, but not painful. The second day it gave me pain to sit or walk, but I squeezed it and pus and blood came out. I figured it would go away in a day or two, but on the third day (today) it is extremely painful to sit on it or walk. What could this be?

Hi tlandonevans,
Thanks for posting your query.
The lump you are having is most likely a boil- called a furuncle in medical parlance, or it can be a anorectal sinus.
This will take long time to heal without treatment and may increase in severity to cause more pain in coming days.
So it is worth while to get examined by a local physician and get treated in time.
Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any questions I will be happy to answer.
Please close the query if you have no other questions.
Wish you a good health.
