Lump below the scar

You need to maintain constant follow up with your surgeon. This is probably just a resolving scar tissue.

If you have any concerns with your breast, especially after cancer surgery, you really should make a follow up with your surgeon for a full examination.

Lump after lumpectomy

Hi.  It is most likely a scar tissue vs. a small blood clot.  You should visit with your surgeon so that he/she may examine you.

This may well be scar tissue, but do not  accept on line reassurance. This must be shown to your surgeon for evaluation.
