Biopsies

Why? A soft tissue biopsy is done to check any area of suspicion, whether it be a growth or a deterioration.

How? Once you are numbed, a small piece of surface tissue is removed and placed in a sterile container. You most likely will not have stitches afterwards. The sample is then sent to a laboratory for testing. We usually have your results in about 2 weeks.
