Keloids are a very visible scar, which is built of excess collagen. While not cancerous or contagious, they can be unattractive and very bothersome because of itching or pain. Keloids form from scar tissue as a result of the body providing too much collagen. Depending on their size and location, patients may wish to have the keloid removed. They frequently form on the earlobes or at the site of any wound. Keloids can even expand past the site of the actual wound.
