    Maybe the scar tissue from the removal site is becoming irritated or inflamed for some reason, or perhaps infected. Palpate (gently) the area that hurts and see if it feels distended or hard. Check for any discoloration. There is also the possibility that the area is in pain for some other reason. Either way, you have to make an appointment with your Doctor so that they can examine it and determine what is the cause and solve it before it potentially exacerbates.
