hard lump in the tongue scar area

Dear all,
Two days ago, in a control check, my surgeon found a hard lump, about 7 milimeters deep, in the area where I had had a partial glossectomy two years and a half ago. As always, the terror for recurrence has striken again!

Question:
Is it possible that the lump may be a scar granuloma?

Choices:
I have to see my doctor again on April 4th
Which are the odds of benign and malignant lumps?

Question:
Which are the possibilities of cancer recurrence in the same area?

Choices:
I strongly suspect my cancer has genetic causes
(my brother had tongue cancer at 29 years old, but he was cured)
