I had a bad fall, and a tree branch tore my lip and upper lip. It is still painful after three and a half weeks. I was told by a doctor that the pea-sized lump under my scar is a keloid. I'm worried, as everything I read suggests this will be difficult to treat. Will it be treatable?

Keloids on the upper lip
I would begin treatment immediately for the upper lip keloid, including IIT, laser, and possibly surgery.
