I have this brown bump at the top of my buttocks where the cheeks meet.

I have this brown bump on my upper buttock where the cheeks meet, it doesn’t hurt and isn’t swollen but leaks a bad smelling liquid near it, I believe it a pilonidal cyst, it leaves red bad smelling marks on my underwear I have had it for some time like 7 months because it only leaks the bad smelling liquid no pain just a little discomfort when laying down on my back.

A bad-smelling wound of any kind requires medical attention.  A foul odor is often a sign of infection, and you should seek treatment so that it does not spread and become a very serious matter.
