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!

Though it sounds strange, I've received a number of emails with this question. I don't know what it is or what causes it either, but this person is not alone. Maybe it's a vestigal tail?

This is most likely a Pilonidal Dimple. They can become infected, but are usually harmless.

Good link there, Anon Cow. GoBoy has that same indentation; we have to be careful to wipe out any poop that gets squished in there. Jeesh, we've gotta get that boy potty-trained!

I forgot to mention that down here in the Deep South, there's a product sold over the counter called Boudreaux's Butt Paste. Exactly what it sounds like. You're supposed to use it down there and back there to clear up all kinds of shit and corruption.

The 2nd poster hit it almost right on the head: the hole you are seeing is probably the drainage hole of a pilonidal cyst. I speak from experience - I had the same type of cyst, and had it removed in my early teens (I never noticed it until we were doing situps on the hardwood floor in the gym). The cyst forms right at the end of your tailbone, and will never completely disappear without surgery.
As long as the drain hole stays open, you probably won't have much pain, but you might notice strange stains in you underwear in a place where you wouldn't expect to see them. The trouble starts if the cyst can't drain and fills up: then you'll notice a swollen area, and definite discomfort if any pressure is applied to the area.

I'm with Everett, but really I best its the pilonidal dimple thingy mentioned above. My four-year-old daughter has one (mama noticed it in the tub). Doctor says not to worry.

Perhaps its a foundation hole for a migratory bung. Yeah, that's it! There was localized flooding after eating some greasy shit at a fastfood joint that damaged the foundation of your shitpipe. While awaiting assistance from FEMA your asshole got disgusted and moved south. To Louisiana.

Migratory bung...this is what makes PoopReport one of the most entertaining sites around. I would venture to say that this is actually an evolutionary phenomenon we are witnessing. Gradually our bungs will move farther and farther up our backs and our entire digestive system will shrink accordingly. Before too long we all will have our assholes the other side of our head, just look, it's already happening in Washington.

Damn straight, Bunga. "Migratory bung" is actually from an ancient Meso-Assholian regional dialect for politician.

Pilonidal dimple or cyst, I agree - I mean, go to the doctor to get it checked out, but my brother had one of these that he had excised last year.

I have one also. It's very small-located at the beginning of the butt cheek seperation. I've never had a discharge or reason to share it with a medical provider.

I have one too. Since birth. No pain, no leakage. Nothing. Just a hole with no hair. Have no idea how deep or what's below. :(

I had one-AINT FUN!'s picture

i HAD A pilonidal cyst WHEN i WAS 21--If it does drain it will hurt enough you will BEG youy doctor to remove it--I could NOT join the Military--I had 3 operations before it got better--Took 3 years to get rid of it--It ran Blood and Pus the whole time--Had to sit on a Doughnut seat all that time--Get it checked BEFORE it gets as bad as mine was--

Crapmaster3000's picture

Pilonidal cysts are no joke. Lots of people get them (about 1 in 10 I think) especially men with lots of hair. I have one and it was really bad for about two years. I could barely sit down at times. Luckily it receded on it's own and has only flared up mildly once since then. My cousin had one so bad however that because he left it untreated, he ended up in the ER. He started out with a fever from the massive bacterial infection and the cyst ruptured in his sleep. Lots of blood and horrible smelling pus in his bed. Left a surface wound on his lower back the size of a softball. That being said. Some people live their whole lives with them and never have any problems whatsoever.

Anonymous Coward's picture

I am sure you have yourself fixed by now but to let you know, you have a pilenile sinus. It may not be spelled correctly but that is what you have. I had it myself. Soon after the hole shows up then it starts leaking and hair will grow inside of it. Pretty screwed up and a painful surgery

Anonymous Squared's picture

yes it is a sinus i just came back from my GP and she said thats what i have.she gave me some tablets to ease the pain and stop the leak and said if it didnt go away ill probably have to undergo a surgery. damnit!!

WilliamTokyo's picture

Wow. I've got the same thing. I thought I was the only one, so this is some comfort to at least know there are others. It just seems so alien. Mine doesn't really hurt, but there is fluid (and recently even some blood). I live in Tokyo, and not at all looking forward to going to the doctor about this, but starting to realize I need to. What a pain in the ass.

Anonymous Guy 2's picture

yeah i think i have one too. i definately thought i was the only one with this. except my wife says i have 3 of them straight in a row in my crack. the main one which is the first one i started out with, is the bigger one and occasionally bleeds. there is also hair that rapidly grows out of it. i thought i had some sort of human tail or something. thanks for everyone's insight.

Anonymous Coward's picture

I have one as well, I haven't been to the doctors yet since I have no medical insurance, but am trying to find a place to see me. I'm pretty damn sure this is the same thing you are all talking about which is some relief, at first I thought I might have a tumor or maybe some parasite laid it's eggs in me. By the way, I can actually feel my cyst under the surface of my skin right under the hole, can any of you feel it?

Pifreak's picture

I'm a 16 yr old girl, and I have one too. It bleeds CONSTANTLY, but I was too afraid to tell anyone about it. It's definately starting to grow hair though. I was really freaked, had no idea what it was.

Chris87's picture

I am a 20 yr old male and I have had one as well for the last 4 yrs, but mine sounds more like the one posted on 10.19 only my wife says i have 4 in a row, the lowest one is the largest and it works its way up to the smallest, nothing has ever leaked out until the other day when a pus like stuff came out and it bled slightly, I'm still not too sure about going to the doctor. Im just relieved that its not cancer

Anonymous Coward's picture

I just recently developed a pilonidal cyst/sinus/abscess (used to be called "Jeep (Rider) Disease"back in WWII). The damn thing burst in less than two weeks of it even showing up on me, and drained puss for about an hour. This was in my natal cleft, right toward the top of my butt-crack. Two days later, after shaving EVERYTHING for hygiene/cleaning reasons, we noticed a small hole between the cyst and my anus. I'm going to the doctor to get this looked at... just got my medical insurance back. Good luck to us all!

YeahItSucks's picture

Hey again, this is the "Anonymous Coward" of 11.22.2007 again. To clarify a few things, I cleaned up the area of the cyst as soon as it burst... including shaving that night. Including the draining, cleaning, showering, many re-cleanings, and shaving, it was about a 3-4 hour ordeal, and sucked bad. I also have already been to the doctor, who took a look at the cyst/sinus, but not the hole we are all discussing (I thought it was a mole at this time). You need to see the doctor if you have a pilonidal cyst... it has to be drained or operated on and THEN you can be put on anti-biotics. I also became seriously ill about 24 hours after my cyst popped, but upon inspection the doc said I did a good job of cleaning it. As I said before, this included draining (only if it pops on its own, do not inflict yourself), washing it, shaving that and all of the surrounding area (butt, gouche, anus, genitals - but be careful!... and ask for help if you can get it... learn who your real friends are!), showering, hydrogen peroxide, polysporin, medical gauze patches, and paper medical tape. And please go to the doctor, especially if it pops, I was lucky I got my insurance only two days after it burst, but go to the doctor as soon as possible anyway. I still need to find out from a medical professional for sure about what the second hole is.

Me again. I went to the doctor today for a follow-up. This was a second doctor who confirmed the this was a pilonidal cyst. Although I am healed up, she said that it was possible, even likely that it may become infected again down the line. Right now I have nothing to worry about. Although it still looks like to me in the mirrors that I still have that extra "hole-in-my-butt" she assured me that the hole was closed up. I'm not exactly going to stick a q-tip up it just to make sure! If the doc says it's closed - then it's closed. She said just to keep it all clean and dry!

Confused?'s picture

I have a small hole, at the top of my tail bone, and I have read all of you guys comments, but mine isn't red, swollen, or leaking blood. Instead, my small hole is blackish, and leaks a white/yellowish liquid that smells awful! Could anyone help?

Hey, I have read all of you guys comments, and I have some of the same symptoms, but my small hole is a blackish color at the top of my tail bone, and it doesn't bleed, nor is it swollen. Instead it leaks a smelly clear/yellowish liquid. Could anyone help?

PoopReport of the Year AwardComment Quality Moderatorg 4000+ points

Confused, you need to see a doctor. It is infected. I had one in my 20's and it needed to be lanced twice before finally needing surgery. The cyst usually starts at the tail bone, but can and will extend all the way to the anus if left untreated. Depending on how deep the infection is, you will probably just need a lancing, and follow up care. FOLLOW ALL OF YOUR DOCTORS INSTRUCTIONS TO THE LETTER, especially about keeping the area clean. You do not want to have the full blown surgery. You will be fine.

Bilge, it could very well be a mole. Those rodents have been known to burrow massive tunnel complexes. Most likely he's reached the lungs by now.

 Rash's picture

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?????
