As a healing reaction usually formed connective tissue that will appear in the form of a lump, palpable more dense than the surrounding without pain. But you should pay more attention to the following conditions

Infection in the area of the wound is usually a lump, which can be felt hard or filled with fluid in the form of pus, red swelling, and is accompanied by a fever.
The rest of the tissue that cannot be removed in several tumor conditions, especially malignant, sometimes there are parts that cannot be diagnosed in full because it will cause fatality in a person's soul so that it may remain in the body.
