Ive had an Ingrown hair cyst for about 5 days now, Should i pop it so the pus can come out? It really hurts.
I have a bump on my scrotum-painless, looks like a pimple and is maybe a few mm wide. Could it be an ingrown hair, cyst, pimple, or something else?

You should check it once weekly, note its size to determine if it is getting bigger. If it is, that will be a signal to go see a doctor and have a medical examination.

Small, not quite pea size hard lump underneath right armpit. Does not hurt, does not form visible bump, no color. Had over a year. Cyst, ingrown hair?
Probably a cyst: Cysts are small, firm bumps under the skin that are filled with keratin. When squeezed, some will produce the keratin which is white, cheesy and sometimes stinky. If it is not causing problems or growing, we tend to leave them alone, but it is important for your doctor to confirm the diagnosis.
