Hi doctor,

I have lumps or cysts on the scrotum for a year of around 8-9 in number. They are of different size. There is no pain but I feel too much itching on the skin of scrotum. When I touch them they feel little hard. By seeing the photos which I have attached here for your reference please tell me what it is.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through the photos (attachment removed to protect patient identity) you have attached.

  • You are suffering from scrotum steatocystoma multiplex. It is a type of sebaceous cyst.
  • They are benign; do not have any chance of malignancy.
  • So, if they are bothering you then you should go for removal. Surgical excision is the treatment of choice.
