Good evening doc. Please explain … 28 February my wife had a cesarean section, now the outer stitches are completely dry but there is a new problem, there is a lump on the inside of the abdomen, just above the stitches and it’s protruding and sore … Guess What do you think is the cause? And is it dangerous? Please explain … Thank you

Hello Deni, thank you for asking.


Surgical scars have different healing times, depending on the extent and depth of the wound, and the patient's condition. In a good surgical wound and the patient's condition without complications, generally the wound will heal and dry within 1-2 weeks. After that, scar tissue can form. The purpose of scar tissue is to close the wound and keep the tissue from being damaged again. In some cases, scar tissue can overgrow and cause keloids. Keloid in the form of bulges / bumps purplish red or brownish. The keloid feels soft or springy and can be accompanied by pain or itching.


Note whether there are signs of inflammation in the lump, for example, around the swollen and red skin, or pus discharge. If there is no sign of inflammation, then the possibility of the lump is keloid. It's not dangerous, it's just that it might create discomfort and aesthetic disorders. When control to the doctor, consult the complaint. The doctor will determine whether it is keloid or an infection. The management will be adjusted according to diagnosis. In the meantime, make sure the scars stay clean.


Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
