I had Mohs surgery, a bump formed on the site, please advise?

I have a dermatology question/concern.I had Moh’s surgery(all clear) on Jan 2 without stitches. On Jan 10 my surgeon said it was healing nicely. On Jan 22 a bump formed on the site. My question is: Is this the normal healing process without stitches? It is a bit worrisome. Surely the cancer couldn’t come back after only 20 days or could it. It stayed flat for the 6 weeks between the biopsy and surgery, and now there’s a bump after the all clear. Thanks

I had spine surgery exposing my spine, is there risk of infection?

I recently had surgery to confuse five vertebrae in my neck the problem is is my incision started to create a big hole looks like it was infected my surgeon told me it was not infected but he put me on antibiotics anyway. So I have this big gaping hole it is exposing my spinal cord and my spine.I’ve had surgery once to correct it and close the incision, he cleaned it out and closed the incision and stitched it. Well the hole has returned. I was supposed to go out of town to a plastic surgeon to close the incision again but I haven’t heard back from my surgeon’s office for 2 days. What is my risk of infection from my having my spine exposed? I like my surgeon and I don’t believe that he’s trying to hurt me in any way, but should I be seeking second opinion or another doctor to close this incision and should I be doing it faster than it’s being done? it’s now been seven days since the last time I was in surgery to have it closed.

I had a cardiac catheter ablation last week , I had another SVT episode, should I be worried?

Last Friday I had a cardiac catheter ablation to get rid of my SVT. The doctors successfully found the problem area and they told me they were able to get rid of it. Today (Thursday, almost one week later) I had another SVT episode when I was babysitting. It lasted for about 40 seconds and it wasn’t as bad as usual but it was SVT. Should I be worried that they didn’t get it or is this maybe just a side effect of the surgery or maybe the tissue isn’t healed or something like that.

I had a benign breast tumor removed, is it possible for the tumor to have returned?

Hi,
I am a 26 year old female and In December 2015, I had a lump removed from my breast. It was benign breast tumor but it was removed as it was quite large. I noticed the lump was there as I was getting a pain where it was, especially when I had my period. Over the last 6 months or so the pain has returned in my breast and it is a little worse than what it was before. I’m not sure if I can feel a lump as it feels different with the scar and has always been a bit tender since the surgery. Is it possible that the lump has returned and do I need to go and see my GP?

I had a hysterectomy 5 years ago for endometriosis, have side effects please advise?

I had a hysterectomy 5 years ago for endometriosis ages 27. After the surgery I suffered severe infection which resulted in two further surgeries one to remove scar tissue around my bowels and lower intestine and one to remove my remaining Fallopian tube I also was admitted to hospital and put on IV antibiotics for 7 day periods over a period of 13 months I was admitted 8 times doctors could never control the infection. I recovered for a period of around 6 months then started getting strange stinging electrical shock symptoms around my genital area and my back and head after many test I was diagnosed as delusional and put on medication which after being adjusted many times eased my anxiety but never my symptoms they continued to worsen I now constantly feel like something that feels slimy like small worms are crawling from my genitals or scalp I get a bad burning pain in my right shoulder blade that often extends down my back into my lower back/ buttock I often feel something is crawling or moving up from my bottom round either side of my waists to my belly button. Area this can sometimes produce also a strange smell which other people have smelt. This causes me to feel exhausted extremely bloated to the point I feel my stomach may pop and it becomes very distended I often feel sick and have random hot flushes, concussion a fuzzy feeling and low mood last time I was in the bath the sensation from my genitals was bad so I took a photo and I would like you to look and see if you see the dark worm type looking problem I see and feel

I had laparoscopic myomectomy, I have now been diagnosed with a large 10cm pelvic hematoma?

I had laparoscopic myomectomy five months ago for a large subserosal fibroid- surgery went well with no complications. Three days ago I had abdominal pain and after going to the ER, I’ve been diagnosed with a large 10cm pelvic hematoma. After being monitored for 24 hours with regular bloods, temperature, blood pressure and ultrasound I was considered stable and able to leave hospital. I return tomorrow for further ultrasound and bloods to see if it’s still the same. I am not in my home country and do not have access to my surgeons. What is the best course of action for a stable but large hematoma? I’m now just in mild pain, resting with a heatpack and panadol, and no fever or nausea.
