Doctor: Hi.Thanks for your query and a the picture.The picture is self-explanatory. This looks to be a small sebaceous cy st. Small sebaceous cyst are common on the scrotal skin due to its corrugated natures, covered almost all the time hence excessive secretions of sebum and a blockage of the duct leads to the formation of the cyst.In most of the cases these can be popped easily with a cure.Very occasionally its removal needs a small surgery under local anesthesia if it starts growing and needs removal.I hope this answers your query well.
