HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern you have not mentioned your age and gender this was important here neither you have said any thing about the type of hernia about which herniation you are taking, any way if your doctor say so, that it is keloid then it must be keloid, because to give opinion enough history is not available. take care and have a nice day.
I find this answer helpful
