Cancer Biopsy

A biopsy is a medical process that involves taking a small sample of body tissue so it can be examined under a microscope. Your doctor may endorse a biopsy if they think you might have cancer. In a biopsy, a doctor takes a small quantity of tissue from the area of the body where cancer may be present. The tissue is sent to a laboratory and inspected under a microscope for cancer cells by a specialist called a pathologist. A small amount of anesthetic numbs the skin, allowing the procedure to be nearly painless. Atmost a biopsy feels like a trivial pinch as the anesthetic is being injected. You shouldn't feel any sensation as the tissue is uninvolved.

There are the 3 types of biopsy:

Incisional biopsy

Excisional biopsy

Needle biopsy
