Bumps on scrotum


Q: I am a 22 year old guy who has had few limited sexaul partners. About a year ago, bumps started to form on my scrotum, some small, and some large. The bumps itch periodically and very seldom, they are able to be "popped" like a pimple. When they are popped, a white waxy material comes out of them. They do not cause any discomfort, however are very unsightly and embarrassing. One of the girls I have had sexual intercourse with had admitted to having the sysop herpes but is under medication and was told by her doctor that the chances of her spreading it is rare. I have included a picture of the bumps, and am in desperate need to get a general idea of what they could be, before making an appointment to see a doctor. Could you please give me any information? Thank you!
