I Have A Small Hole Just Above My Anus
Hi. I recently found a small hole just above my anus and I'm worried that it could be something serious. The hole itself is about 1mm wide and has recently started to weep and bleed a small amount. I've looked on the Internet to see if I can find out what it is and I think it could be a polinodal cyst, but I'm really not sure. Any amount of help will be very, very well taken.  
Thanks.

Hello,

It sounds like pilonidal cyst. This hole near the base of spine is called pilonidal dimple.It is a small pit or sinus in the sacral area at the very top of the crease between the buttocks.

The majority of pilonidal dimples are harmless, congenital anomalies that consist of a small depression or pit. There may be increased hairiness around the area.
The pilonidal dimple may also be a deep tract, rather than a shallow depression, leading to a sinus that may contain hair. These can become infected and drain.As it is bleeding ,so it has to be examined by a surgeon.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep us posted if you have any additional queries

I'm a male and I also have the pilonidal cyst. I've had it for a long time. Evey once in awhile it hurts and bleeds. Its never caused me any medical problems. Thought I was the only person in the world with this problem. I'm glad to hear I'm not alone. Its very embarassing but its a part of me and I'm ok with that. If it could ccause deathly problems id love to know about it. My email address. ***@****. thanks so much for your time.

I have a pilonidal sinus, at the top of my buttcrack (for lack of a better term) theres a small opening that puss comes out of, but then i also have this small hole 1-2 inches above my anus that bleeds. Not too sure if its related to the sinus, because it doesnt irritate or hurt, it just bleeds occasionally.

Wow I have been made fun of bc of this all my life by the few people that Ive told that I have what I say is ;2 butt holes lol. I happened to be in the hospital one time and one night it left blood on my bed so the nurses wanted to know where the blood was coming from so I tell them, so the next thing I know I have all these nurses and drs wanting to see it! I even had someone take a pic! Either way I was told that it could be closed but the Dr probably wouldn;t waist his time unless it really bother me... Im happy to see here that I'm not alone on this one!
