Fleshy inflamed area on the scrotum. Swelling due to fluid retention? Could this be lymphatic penile thrombosis?

I just noticed a soft fleshy inflamed area on my scrotum very close to the base of my penis . It is not painful. It seems to be maybe swollen due to fluid retention of some kind. It is approx 1/2 inch long and 1/4 inch wide. Never had anything like this before. I have had kind of something similar on my penis before. I think it was a lymphatic penile thrombosis? Could this be similar.

Thanks for your query . based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have what is called as Infected Sebaceous cyst over scrotum .This is due to accumulation of sebum secreted by sebaceous grands located in large numbers in scrotal skin.
However final diagnosis can be confirmed only on clinical examination .
Consult qualified Surgeon for examination He may advise you to take some antibiotics and get it excised in Toto under local anaesthesia.
