Tonsiltomy After I Have Small Lump
I had my sweat glands removed a week ago. I have staples, i now have a large lump/ knot right above my staples. Its red and tender. Is this normal?
No, it's not normal.: It may be an infection around the staple. Or your body may be trying to "get rid" of the staple. Or a remaining sweat gland is accumulating sweat b/c the pore (exit) is blocked.
