Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.
In my opinion you should be clinically examined to rule out fistula in ano or pilonidal sinus.An anal fistula often results from a previous or current anal abscess.
Fistula in ano can occur if the abscess doesn't heal properly after the pus has drained away. It's estimated that between one in every two to four people with an anal abscess will develop a fistula.

Fistula in ano is diagnosed with investigations like MR fistulogram.
The condition is not dangerous or life threatening but often requires surgery.
