Pimple-like around anus

For at least 10 years I have had pimple-like bumps around my anus.  They are not warts.  I have been monogamous for 18 years.

Squeezing results in hard white discharge, sometimes with hair inside.  If I don't squeeze them, they get larger and larger.

Is there something I can do to prevent them rather than emptying them?

It sounds as though you are describing the kind of common cysts which so many men in this forum have asked me about in connection with white spots on their penis.  Although to be certain, you ought to show your GYN next time you go, I am confident that the spots are normal anatomic variants and require no treatment and deserve no concern.

Best.

I have these red bumps, that sometimes are irritating.  There about 5 of them around my tailbone.  What do you think they may by?  Are there any serious health risks that could be involved here?  I have had them for about 5 or 6 years now.

Is there anything I can do to make the cysts go away? Is there any type of cream or medicine that I can take?
