bump behind incision

I have a pea sized bump behind my belly button incision. I have had 2 umbilical hernias in the past and this feels just like they did but the doc says it it scar tissue. Has anyone else had this? How do you tell the difference between scar tissue and a hernia?

bump behind incision

I don't know the difference between scar tissue and a hernia, but when I went in for my one week post-op appointment yesterday, the doctor took out my external stitches (one in my belly button and one on either side of my abdomen), and told me that there were also stitches underneath those, inside, and that I might feel a lump there.
