Line of painful scar tissue in scrotum post surgery.

AceofTexas posted:
10 weeks ago, I had a radical orchiectomy with bi lateral prosthetic replacement surgery. The surgical incision was approximately 2" midline on my scrotum down the raphe. In the beginning there was a lot of swelling and a hard "knot" of fibrous tissue forming under the scar. Most of that has gone away, however a small line of that is left, under the incision line, approx. 5-6 mm from the dermas. It is very hard and feels like a line of beads. What can I do to get rid of it. I have tried massaging since the stitches came out, and it has helped, but thats but not enough. It has an irritating feeling and can be about a 2 level of pain if touched wrong. Thanks.

I'm sorry, this is not really a urology issue. Please contact your surgeon to report ANY discomfort or side effects from your surgery.
