No past diagnoses or surgeries.
A few people in my family have had cancer, baul and breast cancer (mums side). No current medications
I have something that resembles a rash on my left testey. There are many small pimple like things, mainly red, but some get bigger at times and become white, like a spot. I've had this for many months now, and i was under the impression it was a cyst?? But now i'm getting in a slight panic, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Most penile papules do not have a serious cause, but some are infectious and may lead to more serious conditions. Are there any signs of inflammation? Do they itch?
Infection of sweat glands or hair follicles (mainly ventral surface of the shaft of the penis and inguinal region. They are yellow/black or red nodules on the hair shafts in the inguinal region. Nodules are often on the scrotum and occasionally on the base of the shaft of the penis.
They may contain pus in them. The hallmark is that they will have a hair arising from them that reveals their true nature. These lesions can be associated with erythema and itching. Superinfection with other dermatophytes (fungi) has been noted.
Given the limitations of the internet as a diagnostic tool, you are advised to seek a direct clinical examination to reach the proper diagnosis.
