How long should hard lump above my incision be there for? Doc said it was a hematoma, 1 month post laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy

Question diagnosis.: A hardlump around a closure site can be from the scarring process, suture material or herniation as well. Hematoma will typically resolve in that time frame and you should have seen overlying evidence of ecchymosis or bruising. If tou are experiencing pain in that area be sure to followup with your surgeon.
