Stitches after accident under chin removed, feel lump under the cut. Is this normal ?

I just had stitches removed from under my chin yesterday. I had a bike accident where I landed on my chin on cement. My chin has been very numb this week but as the numbness has gone down, I ve felt the area where the cut is and there seems to be a large lump under the cut. It does not move and it is very hard. Is this normal after having stitches removed?

Dear customer,

As per the symptoms the chances of haematoma formation might be there at the site of injury and stiches.It may take 2-3 weeks time for the haematoma to dissolve completely.You should take adequate vitamin c for the symptoms to improve early.The induration may also form at the site of injury and it will soften as the time passes.

Thank you
