About Skin Biopsy

Skin Biopsy

A skin biopsy is the removal of a sample of tissue for diagnostic purposes, usually to test for cancerous cells.

It is often performed on skin whereby a lump has appeared, an unusual mass has formed, or if there are changes in the size, shape or texture of a mole. A sample of tissue is taken and then tested by a pathologist.

Before Skin Biopsy abroad

In a consultation with the doctor, the patient should discuss any health concerns, and the doctor will decide on the most appropriate kind of biopsy for the specific mass.

How is it performed

There are many kinds of biopsies and the technique employed in individual cases will depend on the kind of mass and its location. Nearly all of them involve using a sharp tool to remove a small amount of tissue.

Sometimes a local or regional anesthetic is used to numb the area before removing a small tissue sample.

Anesthesia

Usually none, but in some instances local or regional anesthetic.

Procedure duration

The Skin Biopsy takes 30 to 45 minutes.
