Brief Answer:
Sebaceous cysts

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

You are wondering what the white heads on your scrotum are? These are actually sebaceous cysts or oil glands. These are very common and pose no risk of infection. I do not recommend that you try rupturing the cysts as that can cause infection. There is nothing you need to do as these are normal.

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
