Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for seeking our help with your concern.

The coccyx, commonly referred to as the tailbone, is the very bottom portion of the spine. It consists of three or more very small bones fused together. The coccyx is made up of between three and five separate or fused vertebrae.

Does the lump feel hard, like a marble, or soft as if filled with fluid?
Is it painful when you touch it? Is it causing you constant pain?

Anonymous, contact your primary care physician. You need to be examined. It could be a pilonidal cyst, which is an abnormal pocket in the skin that usually contains hair and skin debris.
