When keloids appear on the face, hands or neck, they can cause a person to lose self-confidence, become self-conscious and embarrassed.
In addition to the negative emotional and psychological effects keloids can have on a person, they can also cause discomfort. Keloids can cause itching and tightness. Depending on the size and location, they can limit the range of motion in some cases. In such instances, treatment and removal may be recommended.

What You Need to Know About Keloids
Keloids may look unappealing, but they do not affect your health. Anyone can get keloids, although some people seem to have a higher risk of developing them. Individuals with darker skin are 15 to 20 times more likely to develop keloids, especially if someone in their immediate family has them. Genetics seem to play a role.
Men and women develop keloids at about the same rate. Age may be a factor, since they usually develop in people under the age of 30. Many young women who get their ears pierced may have keloids develop.
Keloids develop slowly over time. You may not notice any signs of development for months after the original injury to the skin. Once you notice the beginning signs, the keloid will continue to grow for weeks or months. Some keloids grow slowly for years.
