Our Skin Biopsy Services

A skin biopsy is a medical procedure in which a small sample of skin tissue is removed for examination under a microscope. This procedure is commonly performed to diagnose or rule out various skin conditions, such as skin cancers, inflammatory skin diseases, infections, or other abnormalities. A dermatologist or a trained healthcare professional typically carries out the biopsy.

Here’s an overview of the common types of skin biopsies:

Punch Biopsy:

A circular tool, called a punch, is used to remove a small, cylindrical section of the skin.

This type of biopsy is often employed for lesions, rashes, or suspected skin cancers.

Shave Biopsy:

A thin layer of the abnormal skin is shaved off using a scalpel or similar instrument.

Shave biopsies are commonly used for superficial lesions or skin growths.

Excisional Biopsy:

The entire abnormal area, along with a margin of normal skin, is surgically removed.

Excisional biopsies are often performed when a more extensive tissue sample is needed.

Incisional Biopsy:

Only a portion of the abnormal tissue is removed for examination.

This type of biopsy is useful when a small section of a larger lesion is sufficient for diagnosis.

The reasons for a skin biopsy may include:

Diagnosis: To identify the cause of a skin lesion, rash, or growth.

Cancer Evaluation: To determine if a suspicious mole or lesion is cancerous, and if so, to identify the type of skin cancer.

Treatment Planning: To guide the treatment approach for certain skin conditions.
