What is it? butt crack bump

Kind of embarrassing, I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this but I sure hope so. If it matters I am an 18 year old straight male, and according to a recent test am clean of STDs.
The past week or so I have noticed an internal bump a little more than an inch from my anus. The skin which is my butt crack is basically a strech mark scar. It is located right in the middle of my crack. This internal bump is painful if I sit on it wrong but other than that I have had no pain. I do remember wiping one day last week and there was some blood on the toilet paper (it really scared me), since then there has been no problem with bleeding. Several days have passed and i'm angry that it has not gone away.
I have no problems with constipation and only have pain when I put pressure on the bump. Is this an internal hemroid? Am I lucky where it is? Could this be some form of cancer? I'm reluctant to see a doctor 1. because it costs money. 2. because I don't think it is that severe.
Thanks for the help everyone

I've had random little bumps on my *** before but never internal.. I used to have acne but have not had any for years. I was expecting this thing to just go away but it hasn't.

Re: What is it? butt crack bump

So I am understanding this correctly you mean that te bump is right before the opening of your anus correct? If so it could be a boil. My husband got one it was from an ingrown hair. The guy I worked with had one it was a cyst A bit higher than yours he said it keep getting more sore and blood would come out at times It was bad for him. It popped at work and blood was all over pants. He had to go to the Er but was back to work the next day. He walked a bit funny from the stitch they put it.

Re: What is it? butt crack bump

i work for a surgeon & i see these things all the time! it sounds to me like either a fistule or a pilonidal cyst! these normally have to be surgically removed so you probably need to see your doctor to have it checked out! i could be wrong, but if it doesn't go away in a few days, i'd definitely make a visit to my physician!
