Thank you for posting a question.

Firstly, keloid is the proliferation scar tissue. The scar may occurred after any operations done in that particular area.

Development of pain in the keloid indicates that it has to be treated.

Treatment of keloid is injection of corticosteroids in the keloid. If corticosteroids failed to give relief, the keloid is to be excised by scalpel.

Here, I cannot give you any guarantee regarding ayurvedic treatment.

So, you have to visit a general surgeon for clinical examination of the keloid and proper management accordingly.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Thank you for writing back.

Look, as I told before you need surgical excision of that lesion.

Keloid normally occurs in a scar tissue. For that reason, I had told that. I had gone through the pictures. But, I can say the quality was very poor.

However, I want to add one point that, it has to be definitely excised and has to be sent for histological examination. I add this because, some other lesions of skin may also present with this type of lesion.

So, as I told you previously, consult with general surgeon for excision. You can also consult with dermatologist for performing a skin biopsy. It can be performed before excision for confirmation of diagnosis.

I am a 25 year old female, 5 3 178lbs. July 24th I was admitted to the hospital with swollen ankles and knees, and large red spots below both of my knees on both legs, which were painfull and warm to the touch; watery diarreah ( up to 10x a day), vomiting, not being able to keep any food down, a dry cough, and fever that ranged from 101 to 103. After xrays and cat scans, they found that I had 11 nodules between both lungs, and an inflammed colon. After 2 skin biopsies and a VAT lung biopsy, all that came back was one skin biopsy positive for vasculitis. Right now my current doctors are leaning towards a disgnosis of Chrohns Disease. I have a colonoscopy coming up in a few weeks. They put me on a high dose of Prednisone in the hospital and the swelling and inflammation went down. Im currently on a steady dose of 30mg/day. Recently the vision in my right eye has become increasingly blurry. I am still not having normal bowel movements, but it is better than pre-hospital stay. I do get stomach cramping, and dull aches in my belly. I would like to get a different perspective or advice on the situation and hear what you think it may be.

Sir, Doctor has identified lymph nodes tuberculosis but they are unable to confirm that it is malignant or not. they have tried fine needle aspiration cytology, but they could not get good results. Doctor wants to do biopsy. Is Biopsy the right method. Can doctors do biopsy if there is heart issue or not?

In 2001, I was healthy 42 year old female. Routine exam and mammogram resulted in biopsy and diagnosis of breast cancer. Treatment included biolateral mastectomy and TRAM reconstruction.

In 2005, I had first colonoscopy that revealed pre-cancer polyps removed.

in 2009 I had second colonoloscopy that revealed precancer polyps removed.

April 2011, I am 51 yr old female, 5'5", 220 lb. Saw my podiatrist for routine appt for pain in left foot. He immediately noticed a change in a lesion on the top of right foot. I thought the lesion was part of the incision that never healed flat like the rest of the scar. Dr insisted he performed immediate punch biopsy.

My breast surgeon has found a palpable lump above the mast/recon incision. My next appt I expect will be an excisional biopsy.

I am so anxious ... I can't sleep, even with taking 2 sleeping pills. I wonder if my breast cancer has recurred, if it's metastisized, and how my foot is involved.

How concerned should I be? I'd appreciate any words of wisdom. thanks.
