Could it be a stitch that has not dissolved? When will it go away? If so, is there anything I can do to help it dissolve?

Bump Near Surgery Site... What Could It Be?
Your best option is to contact the doctor who performed the reconstruction and let them evaluate the surgery site. It could be a number of things... it could be what is referred to as a tricone, which is a little bit of redundant tissue. Frequently, when this is small it will resolve on its own. It could also be a small cyst or an absorbable suture. Best option... see the doctor and have it checked out. Good luck.
