I am 55 male in good health. One year ago, I got laparoscopic cholecystectomy done for Gall bladder polyps ( pathology came out benign) . Two days ago, I noticed a growth ( as in pic) at the umbilicus. No pain. Is it from the laparoscopic scar ? or is it cancer metastasis from abdomen?
thank you for your question. Without a physical examination it is hard to determine exactly what process may be going on. Given the clinical story yo have provided this is likely a scar. I would recommend an evaluation with a clinician. Theodore T Nyame MD
