Possible.: Honestly, any time you cut the skin - there is a chance of scarring. Hopefully, your surgeon will be tidy, and your body will cooperate, and your scar will be as minor as possible.

No.: By now, you should be pretty much healed. This should not be happening. Call/see the person who did the surgery ASAP

I do not know: You would need an exam to determine if it is simply a scar formation under your skin or another cystic structure. Best wishes.
