Post-Cyst Excision Swelling

Recommended Posts

I had a cyst removed from my forehead last week, and the stitches were removed on Monday. I still have what the surgeon called "swelling" left on my forehead off center of the scar and where the cyst was. I know with removal there is a chance of recurrence, but before I jump to that conclusion, I wanted to see if anyone had any input as to whether this is likely swelling or not. Any stories about similar experiences? It feels like it could be either. It doesn't feel loose and kind of pebble-like like the cyst did, but it feels harder than just swelling. Is there a way to tell if it is one or the other?

Thanks for any thoughts.
