An overgrowth of fibrous tissue (scar) on the skin. Keloids can appear anywhere on the skin, but most commonly appear on the breastbone, upper back and shoulder. They usually arise in an area of injury (such as after a burn or from severe acne), but sometimes arise from a very minor scratch. Keloids are more frequent in black people than in white people. Keloids occur due to a defective or overactive healing process in which an excess of collagen forms at the site of a healing scar. Underlying cause is unknown. Signs and Symptoms Firm, raised, hard scars that are slightly pink. Scars may itch, cause pain, or are tender to the touch. Scars may continue to grow and develop claw-like projections over a period of time.
