Windermere Medical Group understands the emotional and mental distress the patient goes through when they realize they might need a biopsy. Our team is with you every step of the way.
    Understanding the procedure and knowing what to expect can certainly help you in getting prepared for the process.

  • Understanding Biopsy

    Biopsy is the process of removing tissue cells or samples from any part of the body. The sample taken is examined under the microscope to identify any abnormalities.
    Biopsies are done to find out if the tumor is maligned or cancerous. Moreover, they are also conducted to determine the cause of any unexplained inflammation, infection, mole or sore.
    Some biopsies are less invasive and others are invasive. You might need full anesthesia or a local anesthetic to put you to sleep or numb the area.

     

  • Common Sites of Biopsy

    Some of the most common areas of biopsy include:

    • Skin
    • Breast
    • Brain
    • Gastrointestinal tract (intestines and stomach)
    • Bone marrow
    • Thyroid
    • Liver
    • Lymph nodes
    • Lung

    Once the biopsy is done, the sample is analyzed and examined by the pathology lab.

     

    Preparing For A Biopsy

    Biopsy preparation would be dependent on the kind of biopsy you would have. Here are a few things to do before the procedure:

    • Ask the team about the procedure and ways to prepare for it
    • Determine what you should and shouldn’t drink or eat before the procedure
    • Inquire about the medications you need to avoid before the biopsy
    • Inform the doctor about any medical conditions or drug allergies you may have
    • Ask you doctor about any other concerns and questions you might have.

    Moreover, you would have to sign the consent form stating you are aware of the risks and benefits of the biopsy and agree to the procedure.
