Post need help

Ok, I'm 18 years old, male, and I recently found a "hole" type thing near the top of my buttox, right in the center of my "crack"(for lack of a better word). It's not anywhere near my anus. It's approx. 2mm in diameter, not very big. It's been there for about a week, and although it has shrunk just a slight bit, it doesn't seem to be scabbing over or healing. It doesn't bleed freely, but if I push around it or probe it it will bleed minimally. It's not sore or swollen. Like I said, it just looks like a hole. And it's not getting any bigger, but also not getting significantly smaller. I read about hemorrhoids and anal cancer and it doesn't seem to fit. If anyone knows what it may be, please help.

I knew a girl that had one of these but can't remember what it was called. She went to the doc, doc drained it then packed it with gauze.

Sounds like you have some type of sore there. In older people it is usually a bed sore aka decubitis but you are young enough and move around enough that I doubt that is what it is. Since it hasn't changed and does bleed at time you may want to see the doc to see what he recommends. I am sure it is nothing serious but it still should be looked at.

It's still there, but like I said, it doesn't bleed unless it's messed with. And even then, it doesn't really bleed, it just kinda leaks out some blood, and stops. It does seem to be getting a little smaller, but not much. I just think it's so odd because it just looks like a hole. no rash, no irritation, noting. just a hole.. weird. Any other inquiries would be great, cuz I really don't wanna have to go to the doctor over something concerning my rear unless I really have to.
