Pretty normal: Your trochar sites are sites of trauma. Your eighteen so you have a dynamite immune system. You are feeling soreness due to inflammation as these wounds continue to heal. The bump is due to scarring and , probably, just a little bit of blood at the wound sites. Take aspirin/naproxen/ibuprofen for soreness, and you can use a heating pad as well. This will pass. Good luck.
