I was thinking about the fact that I form keloid scars and will probably have a very ugly surgical scar. Scoliosis may be caused by collagen tissue disease and keloid scars are formed by collagen tissue. Does anyone else get keloids? Keloids are formed with greater frequency in the hispanic and black race.I know race distinction is diminishing,but Is scoliosis more prevalent (or less prevalent) in a particular race? I hope someday to read in detail the exact cause(s) of scoliosis and cures that don't require fusion.
