Overnight I developed a large lump directly in the center on the front of my scrotum. It is about 3/4 inch long and about 1/2 inch wide. It is below the surface of the skin, but still on the scrotum, not inside of it. It is a bit tender if squeezed. Also coming off of it is what almost looks like some kind of engorged duct. It runs all the way along the the fold of skin that, when the scrotum is relaxed, hangs from the base of the penis. This thing is also tender, but it seems to be closer to the surface. When gently squeezed from the sides, it appears to be white. Does anybody have any clue on what this could be. I would have decided to go straight to a doctor, but I have no insurance and I cannot afford any doctor bills.View Thread
Now it's starting to seem as it's an infection or a cyst of some kind. The "duct" broke open at the top and it was nothing but a whole bunch of yellowish white pus. I got as much of it out as I could, the lump it still there, but the "duct" is no longer engorged.View Thread
