It : It is certainly within your right and a good idea to get a second opinion if you are not satisfied with your first opinion or are not comfortable with the diagnosis. You most likely have an angiokeratoma or angioma on the scrotum or perhaps a pigmented seborrheic keratosis or pigmented mole on the scrotum. A dermatologist could differentiate between these (or other possible diagnoses) and also determine if a biopsy is needed to rule out a malignancy such as melanoma.

Changing: Trust your instincts and get a second opinion from a dermatologist who specializes in diagnosing and treating disorders of the skin. Maybe the specialist will be able to reassure you, other times a biopsy removal is warranted.
