Good afternoon everyone ☺️!! I just came back from my 3 month oncology follow up. Dr looked over chest X-ray said nothing suspicious. He’s going to order 6 month CT for September/October. 

I told him I’m still having severe incision pain he looked at incision and said a keloid has formed 😩. He explained it’s common in African Americans. He said he would refer me to a plastic surgeon. He said however there’s a chance of it recurring he said to reduce it from recurring he said low dose of radiation right after having it removed. I told him I would think about.  😒 

Has anyone had to deal with keloids?

So sorry to hear about the Keloid scar.  Until you mentioned it I had never heard about one before, but there is a short article on the Mayo Clinic Website about this issue and it can be found here.  I hope they come up with a solution for you and soon.  I'll watch this thread to see if others have had the experience.
