Lump on columella
It is extremely disappointing to hear that your surgeon is refusing to see you. Unfortunately, without photos or a thorough nasal exam, it is difficult to give you a good answer. The lump may indicated a persistent suture that is irritating the overlying skin, or it may represent a displaced piece of cartilage or even simple scar tissue formation. I recommend you seek out a board certified revision rhinoplasty expert to have your nose examined, and also your faith returned in the surgical community. Good luck.
