Keloid Scars

What are keloid scars?

Keloid scars are the result of an excess of scar tissue that develops around a wound. They most frequently develop after a wound has healed and then invade surrounding skin, becoming larger than the original wound. Keloid scars may affect anyone, but are more common in those with darker skin, especially those from African and African-Caribbean backgrounds. The underlying cause of keloid scars is not known.
