How to deal with the paranoia of reoccurrence?

Hi everyone, I've had surgery a few years ago, the incision was closed after. Never really had a flare up since, but I believe it's because I've learned how to baby it even after surgery. I don't sleep on my back, I don't sit on it, keep it very clean and remove hair, etc.

I'm not fully convinced the surgery got rid of it completely because early on the scar would get itchy occasionally and or a small hard bump on the scar would show up and go away (this hasn't happened in a while) . And this is why I continue to baby it.

Should I start trying to sit on it normally or laying on my back again? I don't really ever feel any pain. I'm just always careful and paranoid of causing a flare up/reoccurrence.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
