Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read this. I will keep as brief as possible.

I am a 35 year old male weighing 175pds at 6ft. My body build is athletic and have minimal body fat. I am a non-smoker, non-drug user. I am a social drinker.

My story with this area of the body started early this year (Feb 2010) when I noticed a growth in the perineum area. After a visit to the doctor's office I was scheduled for a surgery the next day to remove a perianal cyst. The surgery was performed and I began my painful recovery. 3 weeks into recovery another cyst was forming and another surgery was performed. After that all seemed well enough, until now.

It’s been almost a year since that event. Now I'm having some discomfort in that area again. The best way I can explain it is that it feels like I'm wearing my underwear to tight. It's not painful, just noticeable mild discomfort. The level of discomfort doesn't change, it just stays the same. I am booking an appointment to have my doctor look into this, but thought I'd throw it up on the board to see if anyone has any suggestions as to what it might be.

Again, thanks for reading and thanks in advance for those who respond.
Happy New years for those celebrating

  • You stated that you had surgery in February and again later. It is possible that you are experiencing tightness and discomfort due to the disruption of that area and formation of scar tissue. I think it is intelligent to go see your doctor and have him or her assess it, since post-op care is important and you don`t want any further problems since this was a painful process and recovery. You are likely to be walking away with some peace of mind that this is not a new problem or recurrance of the old problem and perhaps a bit of advice to deal with that discomfort.
