This ear keloid requires definitive surgical excision to remove the pedunculated keloid scar.  Long term results are great.

The first approach for a keloid are kenalog injections. If this does not resolve after a few treatments, then a surgical option is possible. To verify your optimal treatment plan, consult in person with 2 - 3 experienced and expert physicians.

Some Keloid formations may be resolved through Cortisone injections and some require surgical excision.  I would need to know more of your history and examine you before I could make a definitive determination about this.
