Lump on side of scrotum. Hurts when squeezed. Solution?

This is embarrassing. I am 16 and I have this lump on the side of my scrotum , the left side. Its About 1cm away from the leg, so its fairly close to the leg, and not anywhere near the testicles or the glands. It s been about maybe 1 week. I just realized it was still there. I beleive it is just a cyst or pimple . It is not attached to the testicles or the glands but is on the side of the scrotum very close to the crotch. Like it s situated right where the sac meets the leg. Because of walking constantly during passing periods at school it aggrivates the area so it enlarges again from the morning. I also found this thread that says if its a cyst it can tend to be aggrivated if you scratch or squeeze it. And also this thing is in the vicinity of pubic hairs, and there are no hairs growing out of this spot but is surrounded by hair, and there seems to be a mass in it, very hard too. Hurts when its squeezed, but doesnt hurt when left alone or just merely rubbed. It is not exactly round, but more ovalish. What do i do?

Welcome to the forum.
The description fits with sebaceous cyst of the scrotum.
Since it is troubling you, it is wise to get it removed by a minor surgical procedure.
You need to see a general surgeon or a urologist.
