Urologist 's  Response
Welcome to HCM.
It is suggestive of INFECTED SEBACEOUS CYST.
Now, a course of antibiotics is needed.
After about three months, removal of the entire thing can be done under local anesthetic by a surgeon/urologist.
It is a minor procedure and there should be no worry.
Best regards
