I will search our HealthTap database for a potential referral provider. ...Read more
I have a small mass in the C-section scar tissue. Five years after the C-section there is a ripping tearing pain the area. I experience the pain with excecise. What should I do?
Could be a cyst: A cyst, neuroma, or hypertrophic scar could be causing pressure on on sensory nerves in the area of the scar with exertion (exercise).
