Thanks for writing to us,

Skin tag like thing on scrotum might be seen in following conditions.
1.Achrocordon, that is normal skin tag.
2.Viral warts, due to Human papilloma virus infection.

There is nothing to worry, as both the above conditions can be easily managed.
You need to XXXXXXX a Dermatologist, he/she can remove it using LASER.

You could probably post a picture of the lesion, so that I can comment specifically. You have a feature to upload the picture by yourself on the right side of this query page. You may want to utilize it.

Feel free to ask, if you have further queries.

Wishing you a good health.

Thank you

Thanks for attaching a good quality image. Definitely warts can be ruled out now.

The looks like a simple achrocordon. So nothing to worry... XXXXXXX a dermatologist, he can remove it within minutes.
Even if you leave it as it is, nothing is going to happen. It will not cause you any problem.

Hope I answered your query. Feel free to ask, if you have further queries.
