Red Bump or Small Crust at the End of my Scar? (photo)

Please help me, I had surgery when I was 13 for a small tumor behind my ear. One year ago I removed the scar that I had because it was big, the surgeon reattached it. It's been a year and a half any it's still red hurts and it has a small bump at the end of it. What is it

This is a hard question to answer without more information. Was the growth benign or cancerous? Can you obtain the slides from the pathologist who read them? You should return to the surgeon for an opinion.
