Ok
Doctor :  
You know about acne I hope
User :   yes but on my testicals?
Doctor :  
No it is a similar one
Doctor :  
I will explain you
Doctor :  
Acne is caused because of blockage of the ducts
Doctor :  
And the blockage is caused by secretion of sebum
Doctor :  
Scrotum, which is testicle area
Doctor :  
is very much rich in sebaceous glands

So I would suggest you to see a General surgeon
Doctor :  
and get it confirmed once
User :   can i just see my regular doctor
Doctor :   Hmm, fine
Doctor :  
But if you want to get it removed, then surgeon would better
Doctor :  
Ideally it has to be excised
Doctor :  
so that it wont recur in the future
User :   is this an std
Doctor :  
No,
Doctor :   You need not worry about that

Meanwhile you can apply Neosporin ointment over the area

I am suggesting Neosporin because it is antiseptic as well
