Ask A Doctor Question:
I had gynecomastia procedure done to me over a month ago. However not only did my doctor performed gynecomastia surgery but also remove excess skin along my side chest which is just under my underarms because I had lost so much weight, which is what I wanted so that part of my body could be tighter. My concern is why do I have a hard like mass underneath my chest area? it feels hard on both my chest and according to my doctor it should slowly go away? is this normal? I believe he said it was a blood clot? need some expertise...- Nom
Thanks for your question; I would really suggest that you return to your doctor to have them evaluate you fully. Have a good day

Thanks for contacting our office. Without seeing you in person, it's hard to give an exact answer. I would suggest to follow up with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon (if you haven't already). Blood clots can be serious, so definitely follow up until you are satisfied. Might need a MRI. Good luck.
