Caption

Keloid scar. Very large cauliflower-like keloid scar on the torso of a woman. Keloid scars are made of a hard and irregular type of scar tissue which continues to grow even after the wound has healed, in this case for some time. They often form where healing injuries, burns or surgical incisions are put under tension. Some individuals are more prone to keloid scarring than others, and it is common in black people. Treatment for small scars may involve steroid creams, but more advanced scars require surgical excision followed by radiotherapy.
