I have a lump in between my buttocks It has

Patient: I have a lump in between my buttocks. It has no color or head. It has gotten bigger over the past two days but it is painful to do anything. I do not have medical insurance. Are there any home remedies that you would recommend?


Symptoms: Pain, sore throat, aches,sore lower back, and fever

Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.I believe that you have a pilonidal cyst. This is a cyst in which there is hair trapped in the cyst. This has become infected and is causing you problems now. Please see a Surgeon to get this removed. The surgery is done under local anesthesia and will take less than 30 mins.Hope this helps you.
