If the 'lumps' are on the skin then they are probably sebaceous cysts and can easily removed in the office by a Urologist. If they are inside they have to be examined by a Urologist before a diagnosis can be made. From your description they are not cancer and nothing to be scared of. Best -see a Urologist
