I would have your surgeon evaluate.I am sure it is nothing maybe a small resolving hematoma and it should go down soon with heat and massage.

There are quite a few possibilities, some of which (hematoma, seroma) include fluid collections that would require the attention of your surgeon. This will not be solved over the internet, so a call to your surgeon is the appropriate advice here. 

All the best.

You should have your surgeon evaluate you. This can be many things, hematoma, fluid collection, etc.

Your lump may be a hematoma.  Have your surgeon evaluate you.  Small hematomas will generally resolve without issue but larger ones may need treatment.  Donald R. Nunn MD  Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.
