Small lumps near leg, edge of scrotum, occasional sharp pain in the area. What are these?

Hi, I have two small bead size lumps near my right leg and on the edge of my scrotum . The bead like lumps are almost right next to each other, and they are very hard. They also move around very easily, and somtimes i get a sharp pain in their area. I discovered them when i was 13 and am now 20, and they have not changed in size from the time they were discovered. What are these??

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have sebaceous cysts over scrotum since a long time.

However this needs to be confirmed by clinical examination by a qualified General
Surgeon or Urologist..

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.
You may need to get them excised under local anaesthesia.
