A member asked:

Hi, can abscess drainage leave hard lump under the skin something like a scar tissue. abscess was pretty big and healed by granulation 10 yrs ago?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Yes: Abscesses that were drained a long time ago can leave scar (or fibrous) tissue in the place of the abscess or in the area where it was cut open. This is a normal occurrence, as long as it does not appear infected (not red, swollen, hot or draining).
