Sounds normal: As men mature into their twenties and beyond, sebaceous glands and hair follicles enlarge and become more visible, especially if you stretch thinner skin as on the scrotum. I'm guessing this is what you are observing, i.e. entirely normal. But if you remain concerned, show it to a doctor.

I had 1cm lump on scrotum.It ruptured and now there's other red clammy bloody painful lump on it (looks like mushroom).What it could be?
I know this is uncomfortable and worrisome. It sounds as if you have an abscess which ruptured and drained. It might reoccur or there may still be some infection remaining as you describe it. It would be best if it were treated with antibiotics. Visit a doctor or clinic, have it examined to confirm the diagnosis, and discuss treatment with them.
