What does a lump in the intergluteal cleft indicate?

I have a knot or lump with no head inside my butt crack. It s on the left side, I ve had 2 Drs examine it, a flexible sigmoidoscopy, and a CT scan. Nothing. I know there s something there- it s hard, my wife felt it but the Drs couldn t? Not sure what it is or what to do. Please help!

Where it is exactly is it between spine tip and anus? Possible with folliculitis or acne or pilonidal sinus or fungal infection or lipoma. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is.please consult your general surgeon he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My son has a small lump on the left side of his intergluteal cleft area that is very painful to the touch. It does not hurt when he is standing up only when he sits or lays on his back or if light pessure is applied to the area. It seems more swollen by the end of the day after he returns from school. Of course he has been sitting at the desks in class pretty much all day. There is no skin dimpling only slight redness when inflamed.Could it be an infected cyst

noticed a small hard lump at the top of my butt crack a couple days ago. It is now becomming longer, spreading downwards through my butt crack, and becoming more painful. The skin is tight and leathery around the lump. It is uncomfertable to sit down in some positions.
