Canker sore on my testicles?

Ok so I woke up a few days ago and noticed a small growth on the outside of my right testicle. I can't describe it any other way than to say it looks like a canker sore. The texture is the same, the color is the same, and its been growing. Its about 3/4 of a millimeter in diameter now and hurts whenever i press on it. At first I thought it may have been an ingrown hair but since its been growing I have been getting worried. I haven't had sex in a long time so I don't think its an STD....

Hello,

From the description of your symptoms,it sounds like a boil. A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus. Finally, the pus "forms a head," which can be surgically opened or spontaneously drain out through the surface of the skin.

Boil on scrotum is usually due to plugged sweat glands that become infected or by an ingrown hair.

Apply warm compresses on the boil and keep the area clean.Drainage of the boil is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head.Take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription.

Other possibilities which need to be ruled out are molluscum contagiosum(multiple, small, dome-shaped papules, often with a central depression or plug) , genital warts(caused by HPV infection) and herpes simplex sores.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted if you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.
