Customer Question

A few months ago I found a bump under my scrotum. It hasn't gone away and has become more rounded over time. Currently it sticks out like a balloon. Attached is a picture.

Thank you for your question. My name is***** and I will do my best to provide a useful input.
Can you please upload the picture again? Can't see it.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Sorry, I didn't know how to upload it on the starting screen, but now here they are. (three copies of the same bump)
Expert:  Dr. Nair replied 2 years ago.
Can you please take one with a flash? These are not all that clear.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I don't have a flash camera, but let me try with a flash light. Will take a few minutes.
Expert:  Dr. Nair replied 2 years ago.
Sure no problem.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The flashlight didn't help much, but maybe these additional pictures will help (or maybe not).
Expert:  Dr. Nair replied 2 years ago.
I'm afraid these are still not very clear. From what I can make out this looks like a skin tag. I am opting out of the question though to open it to other experts if any have a different opinion.
If you can upload better pictures in the next few days I will opt back in if no other expert has responded. Regards.

Thanks! I tried a different camera, but it couldn't get good focus when it was close up.I didn't know about "skin tags" before, but it does seem likely that's what this is.
