Thanks for your query.

Based on your description, the lump sounds like a 'sebaceous cyst'.

Sebaceous cyst is a common occurrence at the scrotal region. It is not a serious condition and can be left alone.

Treatment is by surgical excision. Surgery is minor procedure that takes 20-30 mins only in the hands of a competent doctor. Surgical excision can be attempted if you develop symptoms.

I would be able to rule out few other conditions if you can upload a picture of the lump here. So if you have a picture of the lump, please upload it here.

Hope my answer is helpful. Should you have any additional query, I will be available to address them.
