Lump on the inner thigh recurring after removal. Could this be a scar tissue?

Hi. 28 years ago when I was 20 I had a small lump on my inner right thigh. The doctor removed it and said it was a small peice of vien he cut out. The surgery only took a few minutes. For the last few years I have notice the lump coming back exactly on the same spot....where it was cut out. Could this be scare tissue or possibly the same problem. I am concern about this. Thank you
