Richard asks:

My lady was given me a back rub when she noticed a small hole at the begining of my butt crack its not bleeded nor is anything coming out of it...it dont hurt cuz i did not even know it was there...i plan to go to the doctors but i just cancelled my medicare cuz im getting married in 4 days and my future wife plans on puttine me on here medical insurance cuz they have better plans and pay for way more then my job does...should i seek the emergancy room or wait a week?


Dear Richard,

This is interesting, to say the least. However, I have absolutely no idea what could be wrong with you. You definitely will need to see a doctor about this one, but since it doesnt hurt, and nothing is coming out of it, you could probably wait a week.

Have you heard the old saying, "An opinion is like an asshole -- everybody has one?" Well, it sounds like you have two. So be sure to get a second opinion to go along with your extra orifice.

Thanks for asking Motherload!

I have the same issue, but it is a pilonidal cyst. It is a draining port for the cyst. I actually have the cyst , horrid pain, and horrid smell, and it can only truly be resolved by surgery, which leaves a gaping hole on the top of the buttocks. Look up pilonidal cyst videos... They will truly gross you out. Cysts are usually caused by and ingrown hair or trauma to the area.

Pinonidal cysts can become very dangerous if not treated. Both of my children have had them, and when I saw how deep the one on my son's back side was I could not believe it. His cyst had burrowed an inch and a half into his butt. Had the cyst burrowed back instead of down he would have been in serious trouble.

My daughter's cyst burst on its own, and luckily for her she did not have to have to have it packed. She did take antibiotics for weeks, though, and we had to change the bandage daily. It leaked continuously. My son's had to be surgically lanced and cleaned out, and he had to have it packed for weeks and weeks. Had we not taken care of it I don't know what would have happened.

If a cyst is not taken care of by a health practitioner then it can begin to work its way toward the inside of a person, and if the bacteria or puss hits the tailbone and then reaches the spinal cord you do have a problem. In fact, open cysts are a huge complication for people who spend their lives in wheelchairs, as are open sores.

If you suspect that you have a cyst, you must see a doctor, because you don't know how bad it will become.

Pilonidal Cyst
A tender lump that develops over the upper tailbone is called a “pilonidal cyst.” This is also a
common type of cyst. It is caused by an infection, which enters through tiny holes in the skin
between the buttocks. Although it’s not dangerous, it may form a painful abscess, or boil, which
usually requires a minor surgical operation.

Steven's picture

Some of you guys obviously have no idea of just how painful a pilonidal cyst really is. You can't sit, stand, or lie down without being in excruciating pain. I had mine lanced and drained about 6 years ago and it has recently come back. i need help. The surgery was supposed to end it (it did for a while) but now its back. I'm gonna try some remedies. Not doing surgery again that's for sure. Good site by the way:

Hi, I recently came across this page in hopes some one can help me too. I don't have any puss, pain, blood, etc. It's just an indentation in the middle of my butt crack. I researched sacral dimples, but I wasn't born with one and it randomly appeared about 2 years ago so I don't think that's it. I went to the doctor's, but she said it was fine since it wasn't a hole and wasn't leaking anything. Yet, I'm still confused on what it is. I feel a bone underneath the hole. Sometimes if I sit directly on it, it's a little discomforting, but nothing in the sense of what other people are describing on this. I just want to know what it is. Thanks :(

Had one for a year now with surgery. Make sure the dr cuts and leaves it, stitches DONT heal like packing does. Also make sure its dry/clean all day I cant stress it enough. HOPEFULLY Im better now. Good luck if you have one

Elmers glue and the right size bit of wood dowl should fix the problem.

I'm 24 years old and was born with this odd, yet common disorder (if I may call it that). My mother first found out about it at a doctors visit when I was just a few months old. I have never had any problems, pain, drainage, bleeding, etc. But she was told by the doctor at that point that if I was to ever fall on it a certain way that it could possibly paralize me from the waist down. So needless to say I've been somewhat careful. When I was in high school I was helping some friends with their band equipment at a local park, when I fell off the concrete stage, on my tailbone. I was very sore that night and had some swelling right above that area. Other than that I was good!

Merlin the Druid's picture

so I have had this hole for years and never had any leakage to my knowledge, but have noticed if i dont sit properly and sit reclined... basically got most of my weight on my upper pelvic... and all my weight is on the upper buttocks/lower back region i will get what seems to be an allergic reaction. it itches like hives or posion ivy and even anti-itch and aloe dont help the itching. i usually have to take a benadryl just for some relief. i dont know if it is related to this or not but since it is in the same area as the "HOLE" (between the hole and the top of my crack, an inch or so) i figured i would ask here. I sit like that occasionally because it helps relieve the pain i have with my lower back at times. off topic but hole related, does everyone have holes where there upper and lower lips meet (on the face) in the crease?

Aw, thanks MSG! That's nice.

To answer sittingpretty's question - yes! We had to go to Fort Lewis every day for five days, then every other day for a week or so, and then every three days twice, and then it was done.

I'm writing the whole experience up for a front-pager now. It might end up being a two-parter.

A Pilonidal (Abscess, Cyst, Sinus, Dimple) is an abscess in the natal cleft (more commonly referred to as your butt crack) that tends to become infected and cause intense pain and drainage. Sometimes a Pilonidal contains hair and sometimes they don't. http://www.pilonidal.org

No. It was too deep of a cyst for my amateur hands. He had his last appointment today, and now is cyst-free. Thank God.

Anon,

Tomorrow my son, Thing One, goes to the ER for his last 'butt packing'. He is 17, and he developed a pilonidal cyst three weeks ago. Let me tell you, it MUST BE TREATED BY MEDICAL REMOVAL. The PA who helped my son had us wait until it was 'ripe' (the skin started to feel like an overripe tomato) and then it had to be excised through a local anesthetic and a one centimeter incision. His cyst removal ended up costing his butt an inch and a half deep wound that has had to be packed and repacked with ribbon gauze every day at first to now every other day; however, he's going to fully recover.

Listen to me... if you do not have this taken care of, it will continue to occur because the granulated, wasted flesh in your butt can continue to fester and make new cysts.

Please, get to a doctor. I do worry that you will suffer needlessly!!!

Best wishes.

MAC, one is never too young to have cancer. Go to any children's hospital and you will see how many children who get cancer. Take your son to another MD. It sounds like this doesn't know what he is talking about.

It's called a dimple. My son was born with one which is perfectly normal. But he has also developed another in the past couple of years and the doctor said it's a sign of cancer but said that he was too young to worry about that (age 19). Is he? Cancer is very high risk on his dad's side of the family.

El Scumbag.....This is a late response to you comment on guys with three testicles. When I worked in a community abattoir we had a customer who was a veterinarian and raised very high quality organic beef. He didn't believe in neutering by clamping or banding because he said it was inhumane. He removed the testicles surgically, after administering anesthesia of course. He said he didn't believe the job was done correctly until he had two balls in a bucket.

He once brought in a prime steer (I believe that would be an ox in the UK) that I could not help but notice had an unusually thick neck which is normally found in bulls. While I was skinning the animal I noticed that it had an unusually thick hide, another attribute of a bull. When I removed the penis I found a half formed testicle internally, attached to the vas deferens, this had obviously produced enough male hormone to give the animal the attributes of a bull.

When the good doctor came for his beef I asked him if had 'two ball in a bucket' with this particular animal. He answered affirmatively I cautioned him that in the future perhaps he should go for three.

I read in the Sun last week (so it must be true) that a boy had just been born with two willies, and they removed one. Dashed unfair if you ask me. Imagine the lad as a teenager with one in each hand! He'd never want to leave the bloody house!

There are also records of guys who have had a fully functioning double set of tackle. That would be ideal for this gay porn scenario.

Sounds like a pilonidal sinus to me. Scared, get it looked at and save potential butt problems in the future.

Chief, here's a bit if trvia for you: did you know that during WW2, there were at least nine of your gallant servicemen whose physical examinations revealed them to have three testes? These people are called polyorchids and although the condition is usually treated with surgery at a young age, it's still found in adults from time to time. Personally, if I was one, I'd endeavour to make my fortune in the porn industry as a curio, because as far as I know, nobody has yet.

Although whether somebody with an extra hole in their arse due to a pilonidal sinus operation would have specialist value in the gay porn market, I don't know. It might be a useful way of paying for the medical bills.

wow i thought i was a mutated freak for having a hole above my ass. it's almost exactly as explained by the posters above, especially ItchMaestro. I'm going to schedule an appointed, to see a doctor about it.

i feel a lot braver now going to a doctor saying i have a pilonidal cyst instead of "extra hole above my ass"

I seem to have a "Pilonidal cysts" as well but my busted like 4-5 years ago, still having pain,draing of blood/pus and now there seems to be another starting to show up above it.
Note:red,kinda blackish & a lil swalling.

Yes AC, go to a doctor. It is probably a small cyst and should be looked at. We here at PR are neither qualified to diagnose, nor motivated to operate on you.

Anonymous Coward's picture

I've had this tiny pin size hole for about 4 years or so and it would bleed and leak a clear fluid every now and then, but last night i noticed that it bled quite a bit...should i go to the doctor?

ItchMaestro's picture

Not sure if I have a pilonidal sinus or not. A few weeks ago I had the worst ass crack itch this side of the Mississippi river. It itched both North and South of the anus, but not directly in the anus. The itch cleared up in a few days except for the tip of tailbone. Then when feeling around down there I felt what was like a cut or split skin dead center about an inch above tailbone tip. It does not leak blood but if I squeeze around it some type of fluid comes out.. like clear fluid. Not much comes out. It hurts to touch the middle of the split. Could this be a sinus ? I'm 35 years old. Also I can't feel a cyst anywhere.

Big T's picture

I have one to, actually i have two. One main one at my tail bone which for two years was just a pin hole that hurt every now and again. Now it has swollen up to the size of a five pence piece and leaks puss and blood constantly, it's horrible. And for the past couple of months i have started to notice another one appearing about an inch or so below it which leaks puss aswell. I originally got told it was an ingrown hair but when i went this time they didn't have any answers, so i'm being referred to the hospital.

Worried GF's picture

Hi guys,

I think that my boyfriend has a pilonidal cyst. He came to me complaining that he had seen blood in his underwear. When we had a closer look he actually had two holes in the top of his butt crack. He has had it for atleast two months now and wont go to the doctor about it. I am noticing that it bleeds quite regularly and am getting more worried when i read your comments. He is very hairy down there so do you think it could have something to do with it?

so, does the cream work and is the hole gone. this is a interesting thing cuz people say its a disease, tail, monster etc.......

please reply

So here's the deal... I had a PC Two years ago had sugary to which the dumb doc said it was all taken care of. It took a year to heal the damn thing! Not fun packing your ass for a year! It's sort of healed for almost a year now though any straining as in my Yoga class Spinning class even my crunchs sometimes hurt it and made my ass feel like it was going to split open again. The other night I felt another hole so my OB is talking to a surgen about what to do next. Has any one had to have this sugery twice!? If it takes another f'ing year to heal I'm going to be totally pissed!!

Thanks MSG

The doc gave me a steriod/anti fungal cream to use. It seems weird but, it makes me feel icky and gives me a funny taste in my mouth. I know that I didn't get any in my mouth because I wash my hands really well after I use it. It must some how get into my system. Hopefully it will work.

Dear Rash, Now that you know you have a pilonidal cyst, you know you need to get it treated. I don't know what can be done, but your doctor does. I think sometimes they drain it, and sometimes it takes surgery. Don't wait till it takes surgery.

Bilge.......Ticks certainly have been known to frequent butt cracks. Several years ago I was fishing with my son-in-law on a very
hot summer day. I thought nothing about it when I felt a drop of sweat trickle down my ass crack. A few minutes later I became
suspicious when it trickled back up again.
It is comforting to know that my ass is so foul that even ticks avoid it.

I just found out that I have a pilonidal cyst. It is a little sore but the thing that I went to the doc for was that, I thought I had jock itch or something on my butt. It just got raw and sore. The doc said it was from the leakage of the cyst. I never noticed leakage and I think I would have noticed it for it to make my butt so raw! I mean really sore. Although, I do have a small sore spot at the end of my spine that does bleed a little. Any thoughts on what you think it might be?????
