I've had bumps on my scrotum for the past 2 years. They're white round and filled with white pus. Three doctors told me that it was sebaceous cysts and that it's normal. Then at a ER a doctor told me it's molluscum contagiosum recently without even doing a test. I did have my urine cultured for a possible UTI but don't know if it tests for molluscum contagiosum and he never said that a test did come back that said it was. He just looked at them and said that's what it is. That same doctor saw the bumps before and he worried about them and I told him "I was told by another doctor it's sebaceous cysts" and he said "yeah that's probably what it is". These bumps have never got onto my legs stomach or penis. For the last two years I have never seen one with a dimple in the middle they've always been round and white and are easily popped like pimples. So is it sebaceous cysts or molluscum contagiosum?
