Cause and cure for blood filled lump on scrotum

Hi, I had a hard bump about the size of a pea on my scrotum that was visibly dark underneath the skin. I squeezed it like a pimple and, after putting on a lot of pressure, it popped and shot a large amount of blood all over the place but nothing more. After cleaning and looking the lump is much smaller but only continued to bleed a little bit. There was no pain when touched and I have put neosporin on the now popped lump. What is this?

Hello,

It seems to be a superficial bacterial skin infection of the scrotum. You can apply topical Neosporin cream over that bump. Make that area clean and avoid tight-fitting cloth.

Wear loose underwear. If no improvement with Neosporin like antibiotic cream than consult surgeon for detailed evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Parth Goswami, General & Family Physician

I have had a few lumps in my scrotum area, and they are not herpes bumps, or any other STD i can think of, i ve seen pictures of people with STD s and they don t look like mine. They itch and bleed sometimes, the blood is just small drops i can see in my underware, i ve had them for awhile and i never really paid too much attention to it, just thought it was some random bump from a bug bite or something. Can you help me please, i m so scared to go to my family doctor and tell him. I have an appointment to go see him for a blood test in the next few weeks, so i will tough up and tell him about it. Can all STD s be found in a blood test, im sure if i were to get a blood test they could see some type of abnormality in my blood cells. Please get bqck to me soon, i need your encouragement.

Good evening. I have a 8 month son and we noticed tonight that he has a cherry red lump the size of my pinky finger tip on the left side of his scrotum. It is hard to the touch, but it doesn t seem to bother him. He never has had diaper rash, but recently we changed the brand of diapers. Should I be concerned, or should I hold out a few days?

On my scrotum there is what appears to be a puss-filled spot, although it's solid. There are one or two of these - close by there is a much larger blister like version that isn't white capped as if it had puss in. In no way does it seem to be connected to the testicle.

I'm a 14 year old male weighing around 50kg and measuring 1.8m. For the past few weeks i have been experiencing some intense discomfort in my left testicle, left thigh, stomach (left side) and pain in my penis. I have no recollection of why these may have started, although I do however recalling having pneumonia at age 5 and tearing my left muscle last year. I have a two ordinary looking dark freckles on my scrotum closer to the left. Please help me. I don't really want to tell my parents and go to doctor and humiliate myself unnecessarily. Hopefully it's nothing too serious as i think the discomfort and pain is starting to subside.

Can testicular torsion cause LOW grade pain?

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....
