This sounds like a thing called a pilonidal cyst. It occurs over the tailbone and can become inflamed and infected. A visit to the doctor is called for, it needs to be drained and dressed, usually under a local anesthetic. Sera.

Re: find out what what this lump is in the crase in bottom

Any surgical procedure carries risks, eg, infection, reaction to anesthetic, etc. This condition is purely local, and apart from being painful, is not serious or life-threatening. You will probably need a day-surgery appointment; it is maybe a little gruelling to have done in the doctor's surgery. Good luck, Sera.
