What Causes A Swollen Lump Around A Colostomy Site On The Abdomen?

Sir I had gone through a colon surgery 10 months ago and during the surgery some part of my large bowel was removed. But after surgery I have taken chaini khaini for 6 months. Now I can feel a hard swelling lump over my belly where colon bag was fitted earlier. Is there ans risk??

Hi,

Consult a general surgeon and get an ultrasound scan done.

It can be a hematoma or abscess.
