Lumps Appear On The Stitches?
I have long been circumcised, around the age of 9 years. My circumcision stitches were a bit raised, a kind of lump like that. So far there are no problems with the stitches they will be. But lately I feel pain, like something is poking at the stitching area. The next day the more painful and even touched the slightest pain. And also after I observed in the stitching area, apparently there was a little liquid. I once put a cotton swab and there was a speck of blood, more or less like that. I wonder why?

Wounds and sutures during circumcision will improve in a few days. If a problem occurs, it is generally caused by an infection or an open suture. This makes the wound more difficult to heal. However, of course the wound will improve within a few days to Sunday if proper treatment is taken.
After circumcision, blood clots may form in the wound to form a lump. Over time, blood clots will be absorbed by the body itself.
If there is a lump that appears years after circumcision, it is generally not caused by circumcision itself. It could be, the clot is caused by an unconscious trauma to the penis right on the circumcision scar. So that the blood vessels rupture at that place.
In addition, it can also be caused by penile skin infection. Infections most often occur as a result of transmission through sexual contact to someone who is already sexually active.
In addition to trauma and infection, cysts on the skin or tissue under the skin can be the cause of your complaints. Cysts are pockets filled with fluid.
In this case, you should consult with a dermatologist so that an examination can be done to find out what really happened. Appropriate treatment is treatment based on the cause.
Meanwhile, try to compress with a warm cloth on the lump. Don't press it, you can just gently rub it.
Thus hopefully useful.
