Fluid filled sac on scrotum, no pain or red, STD report negative. Treatment?

Hello =) My question is about a fluid filled sac that I have had for over a year now. It is about the size of a pea, located on the left side of my scrotum , close to my thigh. There is no redness or pain unless palpated, but even then it is minimal. More of an uncomfortable feeling I would say. I think it might be an ingrown hair but I ve had it for so long that I m starting to wonder if it is something different. I do trim my hair around my genitals, and ingrown hairs are a common occurrence for me, but none have stuck around this long. I have drained the fluid from it several times ( starts out a yellowish puss then turns to blood ) but the fluid just keeps filling up again. Sometimes the fluid drains from several pores. I have been tested twice this year for STD s (never mentioning the cyst ) and I have never had any positive results, so I doubt it s an STD. I don t know what this could be. I do not have health insurance, so visiting a doctor at the moment is not really an option. That and I m not even sure what type of doctor to visit if I had the option anyways. Any advice or idea would be appreciated! Thank you very much!

it could be Sebaceous cyst. It might get infected. Better to get it removed and get rid of it permanently
