Why would my dermatologist mention doing a biopsy on one of the keloid scars I have on my back? Please be honest if you know.

To check if its something serious if its only a scar tell him/her seems a bit weird if its only a keloid.

No, they are all keloid scars, my derm even said so. Last I counted I have over twenty keloid scars on my back and shoulders. Several of them I have developed out of nowhere.

thats a derm being a derm, LOL. rule out cancer and see exactly whats going on. Of course it's pretty unecessary if its clearly just a scar. won't tell them anything most likely. you will however have to get a punch and a stitch.
