User avatar Hi Daneth,
Sebaceous/Epidermoid cysts may arise in many areas including the scrotum when hair follicles become inflammed. These types of cysts (when no infection is present) are usually painless, smooth surfaced and contain a foul smelling, white or cheesy appearing material when drained. These usually pose no problem unless they become large or infected and are ONLY opened/drained by a physician. Semen is normally cloudy white in color although some may have a slight yellow tinge and it may be considered normal. Inadequate hydration causes slight color changes as well as changes in consistency. Dark yellow semen may indicate an infection or STD. Thickness/chunkiness in the absence of infection, and adequate hydration, etc. may be related to hormone imbalance. I would suggest an evaluation by your physician to identify if an infection etc., is present.
