I have four stitches on my arm from a removal of a lump. it was done on Saturday and today its started to feel warm around the wound however its not leaking bleeding or looks red so is it getting infected or just healing ?

It is probably just healing, but do keep an eye on it.

Just keep an eye on it. Any swelling/redness or ooze then go to the GP
