Here are some...: Known to us, we are not born equal although we share the same anatomical terminology for the supposed same organs. As a result, the sebaceous glands of hair follicles may vary and some men may have hyperactive sebaceous glands or even develop sebaceous cysts in the scrotal wall.

If the condition persists or becomes inflamed, get further evaluation by your primary care physician.

Cyst?: If the bump is on the scrotum itself, it is most likely a sebaceous or inclusion cyst. It's filled with dead skin cells, and can get infected occasionally. They can be removed fairly simply. If the bump is inside the scrotum, you should probably have a urologist examine you and possibly have a scrotal ultrasound.
