How can I help?
I am a GP Urologist.
Are you able to provide a photo? you can email me at***@******.*** if you would prefer
Thanks, ***** ***** have a look
okay, so these do look chronic, there is a slight thickening, but these look dermal, within the skin. I assume they are within the skin and not stuck on the testicle underneath? If any question then you need an ultrasound to clarify this.
Assuming they are not, they can always return, but the recurrence makes removing them difficult. I would approach this as if it was a recurrent folliculitis or abscess formation, something called hydradenitis, and therefore would discuss with your GP something such as Lymecycline for a few months to try and reduce them and see how to best manage them then. It may be that you reduce them and you are satisfied with this. It may be that you require something like Lymecycline every few months to keep them under control (this is an antibiotic that can be used long term).
If they continue to bother you despite this, I would ask to see a dermatologist.
It can be, yes, but the smaller they are first, the better. And the easier it would be to remove
I wish you well and hope this helps

I think worth trying the antibiotics for a few months first and then deciding
Hope this helps
