What is a biopsy?
A biopsy is a procedure that takes a sample of body tissue so that physicians can examine the tissue more closely. Biopsies are usually done to determine the existence of cancer. The most common biopsies are needle biopsies where a needle removes a small piece of tissue to be examined in a pathology lab. Biopsies can be done in a doctor’s office or at a hospital if more advanced imaging machines are needed. Sedation and pain-relief medications can be provided to reduce any discomfort you may have.
