Hard Lump After Brazilian Butt Lift, Is This Normal Or Should I Be Concerned?

Hello, I am one month post op. I have gone down in size dramatically in these four weeks, but is still much bigger than before. In my right butt cheek on the upper right side, somewhat near the injection site, is very hard like a rock! This hard lump is like the size of my fist, maybe a tad smaller. Is this normal or am I experiencing fat necrosis?How can I tell?What symptoms should i look out for? Should I massage the area or leave it alone?I am getting very worried.
