List plot with random size for each point

I want to plot an array of numbers on a 2d plot, however each point has a random number associated with it which should be its size on the plot. Can this be done in mathematica and if so how. My code as of now is:

===================================

particle = Array[f, {200, 4}];
position = Array[g, {200, 2}];
n = 1;
While  [n < 201,
  	particle[[n, 1]] = n;
  	particle[[n, 2]] = RandomInteger[{15, 25}];
  	particle[[n, 3]] = RandomInteger[{0, 200}];
  	particle[[n, 4]] = RandomInteger[{0, 200}];
  	
  position[[n, 1]] = particle[[n, 3]];
  position[[n, 2]] = particle[[n, 4]];
  n++
  ];

ListPlot[position, PlotStyle -> PointSize[0.01], 
 PlotRange -> {{0, 200}, {0, 200}}]

==========================================

I want particle[[n,2]] to be the size of position[[n,1],[n,2]]
