    Dear L222085,

    Some questions:

    Have you got any other itchy spots or itchy rashes elsewhere? Check your groin, scrotum, etc

    You say you're a virgin, but have you shared a bed with someone recently?

    Do you have any pets? Do they share the bed with you?

    Two possibilities come to mind to explain an intensely itchy genital nodule:

    Rgds,

    If you've not had sex or been intimate with anyone for the past month, it makes scabies less likely. It could still be an insect bite and if you want to apply something to relieve the itching, try Eurax (crotamiton) which can be bought from a pharmacist/chemist/drugstore.

    It's likely to be an epididymal cyst- look it up on Google. A testicular tumour or cancer would be a stony-hard lump within the testicle, so if you can distinguish your testicle and feel that the lump is separate from it then it's unlikely to be anything sinister.

    As a precaution, you should still see your family doctor/GP and ask them to arrange an ultrasound scan once lockdown restrictions are lifted.
