I have a bump near my genital sac and there is a bump should i be worried and can i pop it?

Bump on scrotum: Does it feel like its near the surface? If so - sounds like a small sebaceous cyst. I would try warm compresses - and see whether it resolves on its own - if its small you can certainly try squeezing it - if its red and tender and large you may need some antibiotics.
