I agree with munchin81....but you don't want to see what develops. If it is an abscess and it ends up bursting inside of you, you could get sepsis. You need to go see your colorectal surgeon, or at least call him. I have had numersous abscesses, and it is like you are describing. Mine are deep and you can't see anything on the outside, but you sure can feel it when you sit. I didn't know what was going on with my first one, and after about a month with the pain, the abscess was the size of a man's fist, and I was in so much pain, I couldn't walk!
