Extra scar tissue removed, found lump above my incision. Cause for the lump?

I have had two caesarean births. 12 and 9 years ago. 4 years ago I had extra scar tissue removed because it was painful when my children sat on my lap. Now, 4 years later I have noticed a pea sized lump about an inch above my incision. It s a little painful if I put pressure on it. I would say it almost feels like a needle tip but not as sharp. It stays in the same spot. Is this anything to worry about?

Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
It appears to be the stitch material with a built up connective tissue, Or it may be the surgical hernia.Some times it may be the ganglion of the scar tissue.
Any how it is advesible to consult your surgeon for diagnosis.You may need to have a M.R.I. for diagnosis.
Take more of green leafy vegetables, pulses, sprouts,and
protein rich foods to hasten the recovery.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
