Cyst in scrotum, pain in groin. Need checkup?

I have a lump on my scrotum which has been there for about 2 years now. I ve had it checked before and was told it is a cyst . However over recent months I have been experiencing pain from what I think is a swollen lymph node located in my groin . I know I should get this checked out but it worries me that I might receive some really bad news. What is your opinion?

Hi,
Welcome to HCM,
The lump you got might be a cyst or some vineral warts, a STD.
Consult sexologist and get physically examined as on physical examination will give proper viewing of the lesion.
Then go for blood check up to rule out STD.
Ok and bye.
