What is Granulation Tissue?

Granulation tissue, which is also referred to as over-granulation tissue, GT, hyper-granulation tissue, granulomas, and proud flesh, naturally develops during the wound healing process.

When a tube, catheter, or jewelry is inserted into a stoma, the body may become trapped in the proliferative phase of tissue formation, as it tries to heal around the foreign object. This can lead to excessive growth of tissue.

Granulation tissue displays a range of characteristics, including its delicate nature, a propensity to bleed easily, and the potential to cause discomfort or pain.
