Question: I have a lump that is the size of a small grape in my groin area just under the testicles but off to the side slightly, it is not red and it is not painful but it is very noticeable. I am not sure if this matters or not but I have hepatitis c.

Brief Answer: Sebaceous cysts scrotum : No urgent treatment Detailed Answer: Hi, I understand your concern regarding your skin problem and I hope I am able to help you in the same. Now you seem to have developed a sebaceous cyst over the scrotum. These are very common lesions and are essentially asymptomatic in nature. These present as a swelling just below the skin and are painless in nature. In most cases, these can just be left on their own unless they cause any problems. In some cases, there can be pain or swelling of the lesions. Sometimes there can be calcification in these lesions with discharge of whitish material. Only in such cases, these can be surgically removed. Also if you feel that these are a problem cosmetically, then you can think about removal. But otherwise, since these are benign and harmless, so you can leave them as such. And these have apparently no relation with hepatitis C. Hope it helps If you need any further clarifications, please ask. Dr Geetika Paul.

Hi,I'm 16. For the previous month or so, I've been experiencing mild urine leakage after urination and occasional pains in my anus and scrotum (i.e. once a week). Over the past three days, I've been experiencing a mild ache in my groin/abomen/testicles. The ache is most prominant on the left side, although it is felt on both sides. I've since examined my testicles and nothing seems out of the ordinary. Furthermore, my semen is getting more thick and my orgasams are feeling more intense; this has been a development only over the previous few days, too. Do these symptoms pertain to anything in particular? I'm not experiencing any major irritation, but I would like peace of mind. Thanks.

I have developed mild itch all over my body, scalp and face. I noticed some small dark spots on some places which are very few. Earlier, around 2 months back I suffered from fungal infection near groin and inner thighs for which dermatologist prescribed clotrimazole, ketocanazole and fulcunazole and it was cured.Now mild itch started again this time all over body including groin and scrotum. I am 23 years old male.once in a year or two i suffers from such skin problem due to which my inner thighs and butts have become darker.plz suggest some solution

Dear doctor, I am in need of an consultant. The whole perineum area itches and bleeds . It started off as an anal fissure but has now spread. After each bowel movement , the wipe causes the perineum to itch and bleed. The scratching feels good but I know it s only making it worse. It s beginning to spread upward towards the scrotum. When it heals, it heals very dry crust-like. But it won t go away because it itches when I wipe so it breaks and bleed. I am not insured so getting to a doctor isn t easy. Is there a treatment cream you could recommend I purchase to treat this infection? Please help it s been almost a year and I don t know how to treat it proper.

Can testicular torsion cause LOW grade pain?

doctor1 MD

Ok, I asked about this yesterday in the main forum. After thinking about it and being a little more clear headed, I decided to put it here in the "ask a specialist." Most of my question yesterday went unanswered. What was answered was very short...

I was diagnosed with intermittent testicular torsion 3 years ago and had orchiopexy performed with non absorbable sutures. Before the surgery my testicle would be backwards (180 degrees) 90% of the time or more and I had pain every day from it....
