Thanks for your query.

From what you have described,scar tissue seems the most probable cause of the lumpiness.The area may appear raised,rough to touch.There wont be any pain,in normal cases.Only in cases of infection there may be pain.
In some cases,after surgery,the area around the scar/suture line may become hypertrophied and a reaction may occur due to inadequate healing and ultimately scar tissue is the result.This isnt harmful to you.
But it will stay unless you have it surgically removed.

If it bothers you to have that visible,then a cosmetic surgeon can help with that.
