    Lump in Scrotum
    An_241265 posted:
    I found a pea size lump in my scrotum.I kept an eye on it for a couple of weeks, it didn't grow but was a little pain full. After a couple of weeks I decided to get it out. I made a small incision and was able to get it out after a few tries and a fair amount of blood,. It was the size of a pea, white and hard. Any ideas of what it could have been? Should I check in with my PCP?

    It sounds like an inclusion cyst, which is the result of a blocked oil gland. It might have dissolved on its own eventually. Kind of risky to be cutting down there; lots of nerves and blood vessels, and risk of infection. If any continued pain, redness, swelling, fever, I'd say yes, go see your doc.
