|There is a pain in my butt and I don't know what it is?
Jan 8, 2002
In the past month, I started to get this pain in my butt. When I sit it hurts alot, sometimes when I walk, and I dont know what it is. Today I realized there is a bump on the inside of my left butt cheek. I'm scared of doctors and I'm scared to tell my mother. please tell me what this could possibly be.

The bottom line is that you need to get your bottom seen by a health care provider. This could be many, many things, some of which are not worrisome and others which are. Knowledge is power. Perhaps you have a friend or relative who can accompany you to the provider's office. Please get this taken care of before your fear and anxiety get out of hand. What could it be?-- benign growth, cancerous growth, infection (e.g. boil), hemorrhoid, wart, skin tag, and so on, and so on. There's just no way of knowing without seeing it. Good luck.
