Ruptured Cyst? Tumor? Need some advice.

First of all, is there any easy way to discern between a Cyst and Malignant/Benign tumor? I'd like to be able to know for myself to save myself a biopsy, and it's in a somewhat awkward position.

What i've felt before was a small growth located between the lumbar and (sorry for the informality) butt-crack. i'd say it's roughly the size of nickel/quarter diameter and up until last night, it had never given me pain. I think it may have been a cyst that partially ruptured, mostly because i feel a small change and diameter, and pain that's generated more so on one side when i push on it.

So i implore you: what is your opinion on this? i'm planning on seeing a doctor shortly, i just would like to know a little bit ahead of time.
