Do abscess leave scars?

4 years ago, i had a skin abscess in my right side near the groin (as shown in the photo link below)
it drained on its own but i went to a doctor and he just gave me antibiotic, after 4 years i seeked medical care because i had some concerns about the scar, the doctor recommended an ultrasound of the internal organs of the groin area and i did it and there was nothing, i feel no pain but i'm still concerned, is this really a scar?
