I had a mass removed from my back and in follow up visit they have to removed blood and liquid acummulated around my internal stitches, why is that?

In brief: Mass

You may have developed a seroma or hematoma that the surgeon thought would impede healing; by lessening the pressure of the fluid (blood) there will be less tension on the suture sites and healing can better take place.
They should just ensure that there is no underlying infection.
