sore lump under surgery site

In the last day or so I have noticed a sore lump under the skin underneath my surgery incision (I had decompression surgery 1month ago, the incision site is an 8cm scar runnign down ym head to the start of my neck) which is just over a month old. I will be calling my neuro tommorrow I'm just wondering if anyoen here tonight has an idea about it.

Could be scar tissue forming.

Re: sore lump under surgery site

Hiya kira,

I agree with rouge, sounds like scar tissue forming. I had surgery 20 months ago, I have a very long scar down my front and I still have these hard blobby lumps that hurt. I am assured they will go in time. I think it must depend where the actual site is.

Hope this helps.
