Biopsies in Valencia
• Dr. Gabriel Serrano Sanmiguel
Biopsy is necessary to get an accurate diagnosis. Surgical biopsy is performed by the surgeon and consists of an incision in the skin that will remove all of the suspicious tissue. There are two types of surgical biopsies: an incisional biopsy, which removes part of the suspected surface for examination and another, excisional, which removes the nodule in its entirety.
After the biopsy, the pathologist will examine the tissue under a microscope and will prepare a pathology report for the surgeon, who will then make a diagnosis.
