Keloid Definition


A keloid is a fleshy but firm raised area of skin. It develops when scar tissue from a healing injury, (eg, a deep skin wound) develops beyond the affected area. This results in a growth that can vary in size from one to several inches. Keloids are not harmful to general health.
