The skin is the largest organ in the body and the most susceptible to injury. When these injuries occur, depending on their depth and severity, a scar will appear. A Keloid is an excess growth of scar tissue most often located at the site of a wound. These scars are a benign form of neoplasia, meaning that they are a result of over-active cells producing more than what is necessary. This neoplasia trait often makes Keloid scarring difficult to treat.
What causes Keloids?
Keloid scars are thought to be genetically passed on. More research needs to be done in order to deduce the exact reasons why some are genetically predisposed to develop Keloid while others aren’t. Studies have shown that the disease is more common among Africans, African Americans, and Asians. We do not currently know why this is the case, although many scientists believe that there may be a tie between skin pigmentation and Keloids as Albinos are free from developing this skin abnormality. Studies have also shown that Keloids tend to show more rapidly around puberty in young individuals, although Keloids can develop at any age.
