Here are some ...: It's most likely a slowly growing sebaceous cyst, which usually requires no Rx as long as being mentally and physically adopted and adapted, and being free of infection. But, for your condition, it's justified to have it removed under local anesthesia and informed consent. Still remember: Nothing is free but comes with a price; likewise, surgery since Doc is a physician, not a magician. Best wish

See a Urologist.: Scrotal masses distinct from the testicle are usually benign cysts. You should be examined by a urologist to make sure.

Skin : If it is in the skin of your scrotum it is unlikely to be a sebaceous cyst Most likely it is a epidermoid cyst.A topical anesthetic is used before infiltration anesthesia.The doctor will extrude the keratin then pull the sac out. Go to a dermatologist. Good luck.
