What causes a lump on the buttock after a biopsy?
most likely benign
Thanks for your query.
As it was already biopsied earlier, I don't think it is anything serious. Sometimes scar tissue increases with time. This is known as hypertrophic scar. There is nothing to worry about it.
Any procedure, like biopsy can induce scar tissue to become more prominent, so that can explain the slow increase in size. This takes time and hence not appreciated immediately.
Overall, I think it is benign only. You may get it examined by your doctor to have complete peace of mind.
Hope this helps.
