What's the reason for very hard lumps at scar end and a bulge above pubic area?

All patients scar differently. Certainly massage can aid in reducing the the lumpy and irregular areas of a scar while it undergoes a maturation process.
If this area also is developing a seroma deep to the scar further inflammatory cells can contribute to the delayed process and can result in a more varied response to scar maturation. Once a seroma is detected, drainage is indicated. While most seromas resolves spontaneously, a certain number can persist and form a pseudocapsule. Treatment of such a situation is best addressed in a case by case basis. Consult with your surgeon for an evaluation.
