Lump after Breast Reduction

Having had a very successful breast reduction op last year, I found a lump four weeks ago. Having seen my doctor tonight, I have been referred to our local Breast Clinic. I am a smidge worried as the lump is the size of a pea, and hard. I really hope that it is only a bit of scar tissue - can’t help fretting that it might not be. Just wondered if anyone else has experienced this?
