Will a dent on the cheek of the buttock caused because of falling down go by itself ?

I am a 44 yr old woman. Height 5.3, approx 170lbs. I fell down an entire icy-staircase almost 4 months ago & I had a massive bruise now I seem to have this large dent on the right cheek of my buttocks .. Should I be worried? Is this temporary? Will this recover on it s own? Will this dent grow even larger?

While i cannot assure u that the dent will go away, if u have no pain or problems in walking, stooping and other activities whatsoever, i can reassure u that ur problem is purely cosmetic. Hope this helps

A year ago I fell down a few stairs and landed on my right butt cheek, after the bruising and swelling went away I still have a dent where I landed, when I originally went to my dr. she said to ice it and take ibuprofen, is it too late to go back have something done to help it go away? I am 37 4 11 110 lbs.

I have a hard lump on the bum cheek near my anus but it s on the cheek, it is really painful and dark in colour it has no puss when I squeeze it and I once pierced it with a needle to relieve the pressure it pored out with blood. It didn t go down in size. It s also painful to sit on. it goes after a while then comes back in the same place and some times on the other bum cheek another one appears. It s about the size of a Brussel sprout please help me.
