Thanks for posting your query.
You have provided very short description regarding your problem.
I need a few more details regarding the type of surgery you had, how long ago, type of lesion, when did it appear, etc to help you in a better way.
A good close up picture will be very much appreciated. you may attach a pic using the "upload your reports" feature on the query page-left hand side.
Awaiting your response.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
