It's good to hear from you!
A month is a relatively short time for the tissue remodeling which will occur after a "space" was created by your biopsy. So, hard tissue on the top of the incision or on the bottom is usually not a sign anything is amiss, but perhaps inflammatory cells came in to do their "remodeling" of the area: they eradicate old blood, they digest old suture, and they mop up so to speak. This may take up to 6 to 8 weeks with a good size incision.
Your incision edges have healed well and you don't report having a hematoma after the surgery (blood collection which drained some). The later certainly can give you hardness and take longer to heal.
Perhaps give it a couple more weeks and if no change, you could go seek your surgeon's attention.
All the best,
