Last week I noticed a bump the size of a pea under the skin between my scrotum and anus. It seems to appear suddenly because I didn't notice it the day before. It Is not very painful or red. The location is not on the groin but to the right under the scrotum. Are there lymph nodes in that area? What could this be?

There are no lymph nodes there under the skin, so superficial you could feel. This is likely to be an infected hair follicle or a sebaceous cyst. Especially with the sudden appearance. Leave it alone and it is likely to go away.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
