Lump in Perineal Area

Im a 33 year old male and sometime last year I felt a lump the size of a chickpea in the area between my scrotum and anus...I didn't think anything of it and forgot about it until winter started last year. I started to monitor it. It can't be seen but it can be felt. I called my doctor and they ordered an ultrasound. The results said it could be a solid mass or is could be fluid filled but they didn't seem very concerned about it. I noticed since I started monitoring it that it actually comes and goes. It will be here for a week and then it goes away for a cew days or a week. It never comes back bigger than it was and it's not painful. It's a tiny bit tender today, but I played with it a lot today because it was gone for two weeks and now it's back. I worry a lot about my health and I'm scared to death of what it is. My doctor said it's not a lymph node because there aren't any down in the perineum area. It doesn't cause any problems that I'm aware of. I get a weird ache in my butt cheek occasionally down by the spot where the lump is, but that could be from anything I suppose. Could it be a cyst? Can cysts come and go? Any idea what this could be? Has anyone else had anything like this happen in the perineal area? Thank you for your time.

Re: Lump in Perineal Area

Hi....demand to be referred to an anorectal surgeon. When my husband was young he had a lump in the perianal area, just at the scrotum....turned out to be a cyst that had was all removed via surgery. Not saying that's what you have, but he being young at that time had him ignoring it out of fear. You aren't and that's a good thing.

Please continue the investigation....a lump in that area isn't normal. At the very least more detailed imaging should be done.

It's all a matter of perspective!
