Keloids are irregular growths of tissue that occur around a scar or recently healed injury. Unlike a scar, keloids tend to rise above the skin level and grow in size over time. The shape of a keloid tends to be irregular with a smooth texture and enhanced skin tones.
The exact cause of a keloid can vary for each patient. If you suspect that you have one or the beginning signs of a keloid, it is important to contact a dermatologist immediately as the growth does not subside without proper treatment.
