Four current topics on "keloids therapy or radiation" are expressed. One is on papers on patients with multiple keloids. The second is on, harmful rumors about the hazards of radiation that have affected our duties in the radiation oncology department. The third is on whether patients with previous keloid resection can be managed by superficial brachytherapy. The fourth is on whether primary radiation therapy without surgical removal (radiotherapy alone) is useful as a keloid patient palliative care or for keloid reduction.
