In brief: Possible, yes.

If you refer to a mass inside the scrotum such as in testicular cancer, then no it is not related to std.
If you refer to a mass on the skin of the scrotum, then it is a possibility that scrotal cancer can be related to an std. Scrotal skin cancer or penile cancer can be related to exposure to certain types of human papilloma virus (hpv), which is a form of std.
