This is Dr. David
the keloid will not affect your heart but can be itchy and ugly.
you can have the keloid removed by a plastic surgeon, but more surgery can increase risks for more keloid formation.
the plastic surgeon can inject the scar area with steroid medications after removing the keloid which can decrease chances of the keloid coming back
you can also receive 3-5 days of radiation therapy right after the keloid is removed to decrease chances of the keloid coming back
you should talk to your doctor about these options for removing this keloid.
let me know if you have other questions.
