Swollen gland near scrotum, enlarged, sensitive. Oozes white substance. How to eliminate this problem?

At times I have what seems like a swollen gland at the bottom of my scrotum . This becomes a bit enlarged and sensitive. Most of the time I can press hard and eliminate a white sometimes reddish liquid substance. I wash the area daily but it tends to come back at times. Sometimes I can go for quite some time with no issues. Any way to eliminate this problem? Thanks.

Thanks for your query.You have a swollen gland bottom of your scrotum which oozes whitish discharge.This is most likely a sebaceous cyst.which develops due to blockage of the opening of gland and accumulation of sebaceous material inside the sac.Scrotal skin has large number of sebaceous glands so more prone to get sebaceous cysts.Please consult some surgeon You may need to excise the cyst along with sac so that it will not recur again.
