In brief: Small hematoma

It's not uncommon to have a small, palpable lump under the trochar sites of laparoscopic surgery.
This is usually a little inflammation combined with a little hematoma (blood.) should dissipate over the next few months. I would not worry about it. Good luck.

In brief: Time

It is hard to say what you are feeling, and you can occasionally get a new hernia at a laparoscopic incision/port site.
With that said, wound healing and remodeling can take months to a year and often some fluid can accumulate under these port sites. The other thing you could be feeling is a small stitch granuloma (reaction to suture). With any concerns or questions, you should see your surgeon.
