In brief: Always reasonable
There are several reasons this may occur. Scar tissue, an inclusion cyst, or suture granuloma may have occured.
There may be hypertrophic scarring or less commonly a keloid forming. Certianly to evaulate for infection is a good reason to visit the ob/gyn. He or she can usually rapidly determine if anything further needs to be done.
