Anyone else have a problem with hypertrophic scars that seem to come from nowhere?

Recommended Posts

I've had this problem since my teen years, when I developed a few on my chest. I don't remember exactly how things originated back then, but over the years, I've had several of them form on my chest, shoulders, and upper back, and the ones I remember that developed within the last several years seemed to come absent any trauma. They're not keloids (they don't grow). 

They form within the span of a day, there's no pain or irritation involved, and then they just sit there. Forever. Eventually, they go through spells where they start to itch. 

The ones on my chest that formed around 18 years ago have flattened out over the years. 





I've started to wonder if they may not even be scars, but some kind of lesions from an indolent form of leukemia or something. But they sure look like hypertrophic scars to me.
