Biopsies of Suspicious Lesions

What is a biopsy?

A biopsy is the removal of tissue for purposes of microscopic evaluation. It is a simple procedure that can be performed in the office. In most cases the patient experiences little to no discomfort and has minimal downtime. After the procedure, a topical antibiotic and a simple bandage is usually applied.

Why should I get a biopsy?

If a patient has a rash or a changing or worrisome lesion, such as a mole, a biopsy can be performed to evaluate the exact nature of the lesion. The results of the biopsy are usually due back in less than a week. Further recommendations may given based on the results of the biopsy.
