About Small Keloids

A small keloid is a focused raised, often itchy scar that extends over the normal surrounding skin. It may develop years after the injury and doesn’t improve without treatment. Surgical excision is often followed by recurrence (re-appearance of the keloid), particularly if surgery is not done with other treatments such as radiotherapy.
