Hello,
Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
As you mentioned that pea size lump is over the scrotum and this lump is nothing is to do with testicular cancer .
As testicles are lodged in a pouch and scrotum is absolutely on outer side structure.
The pea size lump is a most common thing and this in my opinion is sebaceous cyst.
Consult a surgeon and get an excision operation ,hardly 5-10 minute remooval process.
Good luck.
