My husband has a painless lump on butt cheek. There was a brwnish, gray discharge and some blood

My husband has a marble sized lump/bump on the top of his butt cheek. It starred out very small but has gotten bigger over the months. He says that it is painless. As of a few days ago it started to come to a head and it popped yesterday. There was a brwnish, gray discharge and some blood . What could this be?

Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since the bump popped and there was a discharge brownish and grey it could be a sebaceous cyst .Also it was painless that means it is a sebaceous cyst which come as a result of a blocked hair follicle.
Thanks

I have had for approx.5 days this lump on my left upper butt cheek near the cleavage of my buttox. At first it was uncomfortable and as of yesterday I couldn t barely even walk. Bending down or laying down on my back was out of the question. The weird thing is it s not red or any color. Just hurts. This morning I got up because it hurt so bad and went to the restroom and after having a bowel movement I turned to reach for toilet paper and I felt something pop. I cleaned everything up and in the mirror gently pressed on the bump and this clear/white/reddish fluid came out. I kept pushing until the lump seemed a little smaller and majority of the discharge was blood. What is this? And can I take care of this on my own?

Hi.. I have a sebasceous cyst on my forehead that I am most likely going to remove. It is not (at this time) inflamed.. Its just a 'bump' with no redness at all. My primary physician gave me a script to see a plastic surgeon (considering its on my face), however, Im wondering if I should see a dermatologist first. My concern is, that although a plastic surgeon is good at 'surgery'...are they competent to treat a 'cyst' on a face...Any thoughts??

I have a huge (almost tangerine size) sebacious cyst under my belly (I am obese). It has been draining a thick bloody pus discharge. I also have three very large ones under my left armpit. How can I get rid of them forever? My doc said that it would take a years worth of antibiotics, even though he has never looked at thime.

I had a sebacious cyst removed on the back of my neck. Four days before that I started on a week course of Flucloxacillin sodium 500 gram (3 per day). Right after the end of the course I came down with a cold (flu?) very sudden. It's unusual for me to come down so suddenly. Could it be a side-effect of the course. Lowered white blood cell count?
