Pain and bump in coccyx area


About four months ago, I started having coccyx pain and noticed a small bump around the area. It lasted about three weeks and then one day I noticed some pus and by the morning the bump and the pain was gone.

For about four months, nothing happened, but today I noticed a bump again. The pain is bearable but I really don't know what it is and I'm not exactly comfortable seeing a doctor about it.

Note from Jon Miles:

This sounds very much like a pilonidal cyst.
