Keloid Treatment in Kenya
A keloid (also called a keloid scar) is an overgrowth of a scar after the skin has been damaged. It is an abnormal type of wound healing that results in a large, soft growth where the skin has been damaged. It can be itchy and very uncomfortable.
People with darkly pigmented skin are more prone to keloids. Keloids tend to have a genetic component, which means you’re more likely to have keloids if one or both of your parents has them. At Avané Clinic we do proper diagnosis and treatment for Keloids through surgery or laser with radiology input to prevent any further occurrences.
How do I avoid Getting Keloids
If you have known risk factors for developing keloids, you may want to avoid getting body piercings, unnecessary surgeries, and tattoos.
How do I know if my Keloid is cancerous or not?
Keloids are benign but uncontrolled growth may be a sign of skin cancer. After diagnosing keloid scarring by visual exam, your doctor may want to perform a biopsy to rule out other conditions. This involves taking a small sample of tissue from the scarred area and analyzing it for cancerous cells.
