Re: Bump near Anus
A non-tender lump that size could be a simple cyst, like a sebaceous cyst, arising from a skin oil gland. This can be identified easily by just a look and feel of it, and can be left alone or removed if it is going to bother you or worry you. An abcess or large pimple (furuncle) is usually painful or tender. Ingrown hairs can occur there, but again, are usually tender and inflamed. Most likely something not serious, benign, but you need to have a doctor look at it. Oily skin makes people prone to sebaceous cysts, which can occur anywhere.
