How Is a Biopsy Done?

Depending upon the type of biopsy and location of the cell or tissue, a biopsy can be done in various ways 

Here are a few major types of biopsies and how they are done. 

  •  Needle Biopsy - A needle is used in this biopsy to extract the cells/tissues and for this very reason, it is also called a fine-needle biopsy. The needle is attached to the syringe. This method is used in order to remove a small sample of the tissue from the fluid or tumor for analysis. This type of biopsy is normally done in the case of breast biopsies.
  • Laparoscopic or Endoscopic Biopsy - An endoscope is used in this biopsy to examine the inside of your body. In this, a small cut is made into the skin and then the instrument is inserted into it. 
  • Incisional or Excisional Biopsy - It is an open biopsy. In this, the surgeon either removes the whole tumour or takes a certain part of the tumour to further test and treat it. 
  • Bone Marrow Biopsy - This biopsy is conducted in order to diagnose and assess blood for any cancer or bone marrow disorders.
  • Perioperative Biopsy - In this biopsy, your tissue will be removed during any other procedure and tested so that any required treatment after the procedure is started immediately. 

Skin Biopsies

  • Excisional or Incisional Biopsies - A scalpel is used to perform this type of biopsy. You might even require stitches for it. In this whole (excisional) or a small part of the lesion (incisional) is taken to test or treat. 
  • Shave Biopsy - A razor is used to scrape a small sample from the surface of the skin. Normally, a sample from the mole, sore or skin growth is taken in this regard. 
  • Punch Biopsy - A special device is used in this procedure to punch a hole in the skin in order to remove a whole or just a part of the lesion for diagnosis and testing. You may also require stitches in this regard. 

How do I prepare for a biopsy if I am pregnant?

If you are pregnant, you need extra care before going for a biopsy test. It is necessary, as you need to check which type of biopsy you are undergoing and which part of your body is involved. Make sure to discuss things beforehand regarding any health concerns of both your baby and yourself. 

How Are Biopsy Results Given?

Once the sample of the tissue for examination is obtained, the pathologist will be examining it under the microscope whether it contains normal, cancerous, or non-cancerous cells. After this, the pathologist would be summarising the findings of the test in a pathology report. This report will then help your doctor in preparing a customized treatment plan for you.

Are biopsy results always accurate?

 The results of a biopsy test are highly accurate. Pathologists use certain specialized microscopes to analyze the cells in the sample. If you have any ambiguity, you can always go for a second opinion and discuss it properly with your medical healthcare provider.
