Lump under Skin In Scrotum
ADAM235 posted:
Yesterday, I was taking a shower and felt an itchy area near the base of the penis under the skin in the scrotum. When I felt it, it is about the size of a dime and seems to be attached to a tendon under the skin.

It was not there before but suddenly appeared. I am concerned because it feels hard and itches but is completely under the skin. Other than the itching, there is no pain.

What is this thing?

I get things like that on my scrotum, anal area and everywhere on my body. They turn out to be pimples and boils, eventually surfacing with a head that pops. Yes, very itchy, painful and quite unpleasant.

If it does not go away soon or stays a lump and never surfaces you should see your doctor for evaluation and treatment. I wouldn't wait more than a week or so before getting it checked out.

Good luck.
