Hi.I have a growth in the scrotum skin below the left testicle.When the scrotum are tight it seems like a lump pointing below, but when I examine the left testicle I find no lump on the testicle. Also when Scrotum is loose I found testicles are ok, but the scrotum is very loose. Could you pls tell me what may the reason of this skin growth. My left testicle is very down from the right one, which sometimes causes discomfort while sitting. Sometimes this extra skin below left testicle goes inside two upper thighs which also causes discomfort.

Since I am not able to examine you, I cannot offer you a specific diagnosis, I'm afraid. While most skin lesions of the scrotum in young men are benign (i.e., not cancer), you should still have your doctor take a look to be sure that all is well.
