Hi John I noticed this bump recently on my testicles. It has been there for about a week now and the last time I had sex was six months ago. I have had no other indications of any std's up till now. I'd be grateful for any insight you could share

Hi Bryce,

That's a really awful pimple! And I also notice that you have a huge cluster of Fordyce's, but I'm sure you know that you have that because you didn't ask me about it. You can let it burst or heal on its own (which is recommended because of infection and scarring risk) or go to the doctor, pay money, and have them inject it with cortisone. Just make sure it stays clean, dry, and if it bursts go ahead and evacuate ALL of the material within it and give it a good wash with soap and water. It should heal in a week or so; any follow-up let me know.
