thank you for that additional information and picture.

That looks like a Sebaceous cyst. This is a blocked skin oil gland. These are actually very common on the scrotum.

Yours does not look infected so all you need to do is soak in a warm bath tub a couple times a day and it should resolve on its own. If you don't have a bathtub you can put a hot cloth on the area.

This is not a cancer or a STD and is nothing to worry about.

Does this make sense to you?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
