Had a vulva biopsy on a mole, something went wrong, I have elevated skin that is painful- I was told it was not a keloid scar, but may need to see a plastic surgeon- what happened to result in this..

Hypertrophic scar. On occasion, delayed healing or a suture reaction or a cyst or a neuroma may produce a hypertrophic or painful scar. If the biopsy was benign, i would first recommend steroid injections.
Healing. Hard to say from your question description. Could be a hypertrophic scar. Could be normal healing that will "settle down" with time and massage. If your vulva or labia minora are pulled from the biopsy, you may need a skin graft to allow it to relax back into normal position. Again, impossible to know without examining you.
Yesterday's answers . Yesterday when you asked this question most of the doctors who answered felt that keloids or scar tissue were the most likely cause. Another physician thought it might be genital warts. Without an exam we probably can not confirm this. Scar tissue is certainly possible after a biopsy. Perhaps a dermatologist would be your next stop. They can review your biopsy result and examine the area.

Impossible to say. Without knowing what you have, it is pretty much impossible to say what caused it. Read more...
Healing. We all heal differently, and if you had a full-thickness biopsy that was left to heal itself, it has likely scarred in. A revision - removing the scar and closing the wound with dissolving stitches - may well take care of it. Read more...
Just a mole? First, be certain that what was biopsied was just a mole, and that it was completely excised. Second, we all heal differently. Different areas of the body heal differently and the same area may heal differently at different times. If you have waited a year and the bump is persistent, seek a plastic surgeon for revision. If the biospy was recent, massage and other topical treatments may help. Read more...

Keloid. It sounds like you may have developed a keloid. This is a particular type of healing that creates a bump or ridge over the scar. A plastic surgeon can use some medications to prevent that from reoccurring when they remove it. Read more...

Maybe. It is most likely hypertrophic scar tissue. They are much more common. A hypertrophic scar is typicall not painful, develops quickly and is confined within the original incisional atea. A keloid is a benign tumor forming a mound above a scar and typically extending beyond the original incisional area. A cortisone injection will accelerate hypertrophic resolution whereas keloids are more resistant. Read more...
