What is a light pigmented, raised, lesion on the scrotum that has visible roots?

My partner has a rather large, about the circumference of a marble, lesion on his scrotum that appears to have roots.  It is lighter in pigment than the surrounding tissues.  It feels like a knot and is raised, also rough in texture.

It's very difficult to say exactly what something is for certain, with just a brief online description- I'd recommend your partner get to the doctor to have it looked at.  The only way to get an accurate diagnosis is for them to have a doctor take more of your partners medical history and do an in person exam.

A cyst or boil. Tell him to man up and give it a big squeeze, don't quit until it blows. if need be, stab that sucker. Not your man, the boil.
