Question
Hey I have a random external lump between my anus and scrotum.
It was there around 6 months ago but appeared to go away.
Now recently it has come back. It does not cause any pain or itching, when squeezed it does not cause any real pain or leek liquid. It is red now but its possibly red its from me squeezing it.
Photo attached.

Can you help in any way?!
