Brief Answer: Photograph would have been perfect-------------- Detailed Answer: Welcome to the forum. Your description is suggestive of SEBACEOUS CYSTS of the scrotum. These are simple, noncancerous masses of the scrotal wall. If big and causing discomfort, they may be removed by a minor surgical procedure. You may post pictures of the lump on this page using the site's uploader. Hope this helps, Truly,
