Is there a way of finding out if I could develop keloids?
Patient : Hello!
I am a teenage girl who has never gotten her ears pierces (or any piercings for that matter). I am caucasian. My father got his ear pierced when he was younger and he developed a keloid. It has been horrible for him. He's had about 7 surgeries and has even undergone radiation therapy. Is there a way of finding out if i have the genetics to develop keloids?
