How to cure sebaceous cysts on scrotum?

I have a few sebaceous cysts on my scrotum. One was particularily larger than the others, so squeezed i, expecting it to burst. I now think it is infected as it has swollen up and almost tripled in size and is very tender to touch. Almost like there is a lot of pressure in it.

Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have multiple Sebaceous Cysts over scrotum.

The scrotal skin is rich in sebaceous glands and hence prone to get more sebaceous cyst due to accumulation of sebum beneath the skin.
Normally they fade away without treatment however they need to be treated if increase in size or get infected.
Please consult qualified General Surgeon for clinical evaluation and further treatment.
If needed some of them which are bigger may need to get excised in Toto under local anaesthesia.
