The Cause Of The Surgical Scar On The Thigh Is Swollen?
Hello, so this is how my mother had undergone a tumor operation on her thigh but after a few months the surgery was swollen.
Hello Dani, Thank you for the question.
Are these symptoms of swelling accompanied by skin redness and pain? Symptoms of swelling in the surgical scar should need to be aware of because this condition is an abnormal condition and needs further examination. Swelling in the former operation can be caused by:
hypertrophic scars cellulitis new tumor growth If the swelling is getting bigger, especially if accompanied by redness and pain, please advise your mother to consult again with the nearest surgeon. The doctor will re-examine the scar and if necessary further tests such as blood tests, ultrasound, or biopsy (if there are new lumps). After ascertaining the cause, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment. For a while, please let your mother try to do a cold compress on the swollen area. If it hurts, your mother can take paracetamol for a while, follow the instructions on the medicine package.
Hopefully this information helps you.
