Hi all...I had my aortic valve replaced 3 years ago. Six months ago I noticed a hard, non-tender lump on my right side in the groin area. This is the same side that I had one of my incisions for the surgery. I was wondering if anybody else has had scar tissue from this surgery in the groin area. I am scheduled to see a surgeon on Friday for a possible biopsy of this area. Thanks for any info!!
