It looks to be a cyst. Cyst emits out thick pus like or other colored fluid out of the punctum ( hole). Sebaceous cyst is common at the end of the penile shaft or the scrotum. It is most often foul smelling fluid.

It is formed by the collection of the inner lining of the cyst. THe cyst is actually enlargement of the sebaceous gland a modified sweat gland. It is not worrisome.

It can be excised or the fluid can be expelled. Please see a doctor for the same.
