About 2 1/2 weeks ago I had my port removed, a week following the removal after the steri strips came off I discovered a lump under my incision. The lump feels more round with some protrusions and I was wondering if any of you who have had thier port removed also have a lump under their incision.

I had my port removed too. I don't remember there being a bulge underneath the incision. Can it be scare tissue? Just a thought. Tell you doctor if it concerns you.

My port came out last September and I have a lump under the skin. It get's a little better as the time goes by, it's not as hard ( thats if your is hard ) I think its were the needle went in all the time. I was told it is scar tissue and not to worry about it, but you should alway check with your doctor if you are concerned.
