Brief Answer:
Keloid

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for the query.

Probably you have developed keloid. It is an overgrown skin at the site of injury.
I would like to see the lesion in order to confirm my diagnosis. Please upload a photograph of the involved area. There is an option to upload photographs on right side of query page.
Please utilize that.

Thank you
