Hi, to all doctors. I am a 17 year old teen bodybuilder and I have this 1cm keloid/hypertrophic looking thing on the right side of my abdomin. It s shinny in colour. I REALLY WANT IT REMOVED. I don t know if it s a keloid or a hypertrophic scar but it s 1cm in size. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

No..Do not think about removal of the lesion you have..keloid or hypertrophic scar. It may relapse and worsen severely. I would recommend to take intralesional steroid injections by expert Dermatologist...ok

Hope this helps.
