Good morning. As per the available information swelling under the skin which is movable not inflammed non tender could be lipoma which is a lipid/fat accumulation under skin. it seems no way connected to surgery. it doesnot require any specific treatment. if any changes like increase in size, painful, any other changes u need to consult otherwise u need not worry. thank u
