Honestly, I am very worried. I am only 16 years old and I have several lumps on my scrotum. The smallest are very small, almost like white specks, while the largest are about 1/4 inch in diameter! They DO protrude from the skin and I am sure that they are not inflamed hair follicles. I dont feel anything when I put pressure on them and they do not "pop" nor do they move under the skin or change shape. I am very worried as I have about 2 large ones, and a new one (unless I didnt notice it somehow) has just shown up. The new one is quite red around the perimeter, however it too is a very pearly white. I am a virgin and do not share drinks with anyone, so I am pretty sure this cant be an STD. Please help!

And I am very reluctant to go to the doctor about this, so please refrain from only giving me the advice to visit the doctor.

Thanks!

I have the exact same problem, but I seem to have more of them.

I am 18 years old and have had them for about 2-3 years, since before I had any sexual experiences.

I have noticed that sometimes they do pop, but only after a long while or after repeatedly applying pressure for a long time. The smaller ones seem to pop more easily.

After doing some research on the internet I'm about 65% certain that it's nothing bad, but just a kind of zit.


Edit: in another thread on this forum someone replied that they are sebaceous cysts.
The description seems pretty similar and one of the possible causes is excessive testosterone production, which is what happens during puberty of course.

Hey, if you're worried your dad will make fun of you, tell a family member that you need to talk to a doctor about an issue you can't discuss with anyone else. You're also kind of young to be having sex, but if you do, use a condom and be respectful

Wikipedia answer
Another common and effective method of treatment involves placement of a heat-pad directly on the cyst for about fifteen minutes, twice daily, for about 10 days (depending on size and location of the cyst). There is some anecdotal evidence however that this home remedy can lead to infection in a previously uninfected cyst. This may be caused by an over-heated or non-sterile heat pad.
This method works by bringing the wax-like material inside of the cyst to a temperature at which it melts, and can be reabsorbed and processed by the body, as a small amount of oily fluid. This method is preferred over surgery both for reasons of associated costs and risks of surgery. This methodology is not applicable for non-sebaceous cysts, however, as other varieties of cysts do not contain the same hardened sebum deposits, and therefore do not melt to be reabsorbed by the body.
Under no circumstances must one try to pop the cyst, as it can lead to infection of the surrounding tissue.

I am 16 and also have this problem. I have researched for a while now, and I think this is the best advise. I plan to start tonight and will reply if it works in 10 days.

Scrotum Cysts, info and advice from my doctor and my own
They are cysts. They do pop if given enough pressure and time, but doing so can also force the substance further into your scrotum, making it harder to come out. I have seen a doctor, who told me that many men get them (around 25% of men) and that they can be removed by a dermatoligst (sic) with an office visit and a local anesthetic. the doctor also said that they are mostly harmless, and will go away by themselves given enough time.

My experience has shown that with time they do not disappear, and with enough force, they WILL pop, which is a GREAT feeling to know you've gotten a cyst out of your privates. I have also gotten them to pop with the aid of a CLEAN, STERILE sewing needle inserted into the cyst to break it up a bit, and also to give it an easier route to escape. Heat and moisture help loosen the skin, open the pores, and make it much easier (try a shower or a long day at work) Some however, have eluded me for years, and I have been unable to get rid of them on my own.

They can itch, i think simply because they put pressure on the scrotum, but are NOT STDS, NOT transmittable, and NOT really a big deal. If they bother you, get them removed by a doctor, if you attempt to work on them yourself, make sure you use a clean tool, if and when you break the skin and/or draw blood, be sure you use an antibacterial cream ( i.e. neosporin) to prevent infection. A bad infection can result in you losing your NUTS if not properly managed


Moral of the story, don't freak, I had the same thoughts when i discovered them at age 16. Take care of them safely, properly, and don't make the situation worse by hastyness and ignorance about proper surgical procedures.

i had them for 12 years (started with them when i was like 15) and they never went away (which the doc said they would haha) I paid to have them surgically removed and all was good for 5 years now 30 years old they are coming back again..sucks but not much you can do i guess, they are harmless just a freakin nuissance and embarrasing when meeting new girls...they only way to get rid of them is surgery..it didn't hurt and was no big deal, took 20 mins it's the aftermath...took a week or two of neosporin and bandages for the stitches...but as bad as it sounds really didn't hurt.

hard white bumps
I noticed that I was getting small 1mm dia round hard spheres under a layer of my skin on my scrotum, and the base of the shaft of my penis. They would never come to a head and pop, they are not sebaceous cysts or STD’s or sebaceous prominence. They only appeared after a month of not ejaculating. Once I started ejaculating again, they went away on their own. During the period of seminal inactivity, I found I could scrape them open with a knife and remove them with very minimal blood loss, less than a drop. However, they would not pop and they would not get worse or better, until, as I said, I began ejaculating again. During my period of seminal inactivity, I had an intense build up of semen, it was even starting to leak out. When I finally ended this period of inactivity, I was, of course, easily arouse to the point of ejaculation and when I did ejaculate, it was over 2 oz, the most I’ve ever ejaculated at one orgasm. After a few more ejaculations, I notice the white bumps started disappearing. They haven’t been back, as long as I’ve had regular ejaculations.

white bump
I do not necessarily advise this as a solution but I have found that if you irritate the white bump by applying pressure it will seem to grow larger and red... at this point you can poke it with a needle. once this is done wait a day or to for it to get further irritated, you can kind of tell that it rises more to the surface and you can squeeze it out after.

White lumps on scrotum that move under the skin
Eureka! I've had numerous bumps on my scrotum for years now, even before being sexually active. If your bumps are the same, they seem to be hard and move around under the skin. The smallest, newest ones pop like a zit, but the older big ones do not. They get irritated if you pick at them, and bleed if you poke them or scrape them enough.
I have eleminated these suckers! If you do this properly, you can remove each lump as one round white ball and you don't have to worry about them coming back. I never went to the doctor. I was picking at one that I irritated by trying to pop it and scraping the top skin off with my fingernails. After continued pressure and enough scraping the top of it, I left them alone for two days to scab over. Once the scab is hard, pick it off and apply pressure beneath the lump, keeping it as a ball. It will hurt and there will be blood. If you see a white head eventually protrude at the center, continue the pressure at the base beneath it, being careful not to pop it. If you do not see the white center, don't worry. Just let it alone to scab over again, and repeat the process. I promise that you will be relieved by these results, even if you doubt it at first. These lumps are whole bags of puss that pop like a zit, and they will work themselves to the surface with enough attention. I have removed seven so far that have been on my sack for at least 6 years, and it is the greatest relief. They DO come out as a whole round unit, if you are careful not to pop them, and the best thing is that you are no longer embarrassed after the remaining scab heals over. There is minimal scarring, hardly noticeable, depending upon how big the lumps are. Good luck, everyone! Let me know if you have any questions and share this information to help other.

I have had this problem for about 14 years. I'm 26 now. I have a couple dozen of them all around my scrodum. One of the hardest parts about having these cysts is telling your girlfriend about them. It is better to just tell her before she asks. Just remind her its no big deal, LOTS of men have them and there is nothing to worry about. I have been sexually active for 10 years now and have told a few women about this. Never once did she leave me or make fun or anything negative. When you tell her make sure she knows it is one of the most self conscience things about you and she will feel very close to you for opening up to her about a touchy subject. Its all about how you handle the situation, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. You dont want to always leave the light off, right?
The hot pack is the best way to visibly reduce them to where most of them are hardly noticeable. I hope this helps.

These sound like milia little protein cysts but on the scrotum. What u can try is stretching skin round problem spot and rub back and forth with fingernail quickish about 20 times. Will be a tad sore leave for a day sometimes 2 than gently squeeze the sucker it should easily remove without much pressure if not try later. Remember once popped treat Like a wound and put antiseptic cream on the area. Some may need a few goes to remove and larger ones will require a dermatologist or doctor. Smaller pimple sized ones should easily go after a few days. No need for needles or anything more tricky. It's an easy fix and not serious so don't stress guys. Remember this technique only good for those small pimple sized ones larger ones wont work with this technique and will require a dermatologist.

Okay, so i have the same problem as most of you. I have a few white bumps on my testicles, they usually stay for a few months till they are able to be popped. A few months ago i got one that was quite larger than the others. I finally popped it but it wasnt just puss that came out. It seemed like some type of inner sack came out when i popped it. the "inner sack" was filled with the puss and now its just kind of sticking out of the pimple like bump. im pretty sure these bumps are Milia from what countless hours of research ive done. but ive tried to pull on this sack thing and it doesnt come out so im completely clueless now. anyone else have this problem...?

i used a pair of nail clippers (clean with alcohol) to cut the skin ontop of the lump. the lump came out as a whole (puss still in the puss sack) this has stopped the puss sack re-filling. i know what im doing (fathers a doctor) lol so if possible seek medical advice before diving in and chopping your balls to bits lol

I numbed my big one last night. Cut it open with a sterile knife and cut a slit on the top. I squeezed it out and it came out as a whole big white hard sack. I then pulled the sack apart from my testicles. Ive been cleaning the wound with hydrogen peroxide and alcohol. Will it come back? If not i want to do the other one i have the same way. I just dont know if theres still a sack inside or if its attached to the ball. Please help me out
