    That is the access port for the laparoscope. The skin or the fascia was likely closed with suture. The knot may be felt under it. That feeling should go away. Seroma is a fluid collection, which can happen but not as commonly. See your surgeon if it persists beyond a few weeks.

    Dear Scott.
    Most likely it is nothing serious, but follow up with your surgeon.
