Hi, I'm Doctor Robert, a Medical Internist (MD) who deals with diseases of all organ systems. All my education has been completed in the US.
This is likely a sebaceous cyst that has formed. This is common on the scrotum.
For a whole list of things that cause this, go here:http://menshealth.about.com/od/diseasesconditions/a/penis_spots.htm
If it feels soft and fluid filled, it is likely a cyst.
Harder is usually a pimple with a reactive process that has made it harder than usual.
What you can do is take a warm water soaked washcloth and apply it for 15 minutes four times daily and see if it bursts on it's own. Do NOT squeeze it as that will only irritate it.
Clearasil is not going to do anything as you just found out.
Warm compresses are much better. And I bet you're feeling it right now as you're reading it. That's natural to do, but please don't as it will only make it worse.
If after 7 days of compresses it has not subsided, then off to the primary care physician for a quick look. This is NOT cancer, by the way. It is a self-limited condition, but merits an evaluation if it persists.
The scrotum has lots of hair follicles and glands, and sometimes they get blocked;. Because the skin is so THIN, any accumulation of sebum or fluids feel big RIGHT away. If this were on your belly or thigh, you probably wouldn't even notice it.
