Have lump on scrotum. Haven't shaved recently. Suggestions?

Hi i recently found a marble sized hard lump on the side of my scrotum right where it meets the thigh. I m not worried it is cancer because it is not attached to the testicles. but i d like to know what it is. my first thought was an ingrown hair but i havent shaved recently. i do however think im suffering from a light case of hydrodinitis supportiva. the spot on the scrotum i ve just never had from that. any answers would be appreciated.

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have what is called as Sebaceous Cyst in the groin.
This area is rich in sebaceous glands and so more prone to get sebaceous cyst due to accumulation of sebum beneath the skin.
Normally no treatment is required as it subsides of its own.However treatment is required if it gets infected or increases in size. You may need to get it excised in Toto under local anaesthesia by a surgeon.
