Does anyone know anything about these? I've self diagnosed myself with one using google - I know I know! But last week I discovered a small lump on my back on top of a scar, today it's bigger and tender to touch but I'm not sure if it's because it's right where my bra sits. Wtf is it and what do I do? Who do I see about it?

I have one after my thyroid operation, it's about 3 inches across my neck. I've been to a dermatologist but he said they wouldn't do anything until after a year and there's not much that can be done anyway because if they cut the excess tissue away, it will probably just grow back even more as that's what happens to people with skin like this. So it's basically just a matter of time :-(

It's ok it's nothing harmful! They keep telling me it's very common in black people (I don't know why they keep telling me that as I am not black!!)

I read that too, but then I also read that people with fair skin - Celtic type can get it too so one extreme to the other! I just don't like having a big lump in the centre if my back, if it's got this much bigger in a week how much bigger is it going to get?? I've emailed a dermatologist for an appointment so hopefully I can at least speak to someone about it and confirm if it is even that. I have lots of scars and this is the first time this has happened.

Good luck, hope it works out OK. Bit weird if its suddenly started to grow isn't it? Def worth getting it checked out. X
