Hi there. Thanks for posting on Ehealthforum. You are describing a sebaceous cyst -- a common benign growth in the scrotum. Please show it to your doctor. A simple, painless, minor operative procedure will get rid of it for you. Otherwise it can become a focus for recurring infection and you don't want that to happen.
