Keloid or keloid disorder is the overgrowth of scar tissues on the injured area. Normally, these scar tissues are formed to protect the wound. But If these scar tissues overgrow, it results in hard keloid (انگور نشان زدہ نسیج کا زیادہ بڑھاؤ) formation. They’re usually formed on the chest, shoulders, earlobes, and cheeks. But keloids can develop on any part of the body. Although keloids don’t cause any harmful effects but can create cosmetic and appearance concerns.
Occurrence of Keloids
Keloids are developed only in humans and occur in 5-15% of wounds. As per studies, about 10% of people experience keloid. It occurs equally in both sexes (men and women). Black people are more prone to keloids as compared to others.
