There is a Lump Beneath My Donor Area After My Hair Transplant. What Is It?August 12th, 2005
Q: I have developed a rather large, hard lump beneath the skin at the base of my scalp in the donor area that I first noticed this about two or three weeks after my hair transplant. What is this?
A: You are describing an enlarged lymph node, a condition commonly seen as a normal part of the post-op course following hair transplants.
This is a normal part of healing in response to the surgery. It will resolve on its own in about 3-6 months. It doesn’t require any treatment and it should not be a cause for concern.Related Posts:
