Lump at incision after vasectomy. Is it just an ingrown hair?

I had a vasectomy at the beginning of this year, and have developed a little lump at the incision. I was thinking it was an ingrown hair . For a few days it was like a zit , now there is just a lump and a hard bubble-ish point. Could it be just an ingrown hair? If so how do I go about getting rid of it? Should I try squeezing it? Thanks

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

The lump you have could be an incision site bacterial infection or a folliculitis. This can progress into a bigger lump filled with pus and debris if not treated early.

Do consult a surgeon for the same who after hand on examination of the lump can plan on the management . Incision and drainage could be a better modality of the treatment if it is a pus filled lump.

Wish you good health.
