A biopsy is a procedure to ascertain if a person has cancerous outgrowth. The process involves removing minuscule tissue samples or the cells which are sent for further analysis in determining cancer. Depending on the condition, either a piece of skin, or tissue, or a suspected tumor part will be removed surgically and analyzed in the lab. Though MRI is used to an extent, the most foolproof method that a pathologist / general physician would use for finding the symptoms would be the biopsy. There are three major types of biopsy. The easiest is the Bone Marrow Biopsy where a long needle is inserted into the hipbone for taking samples of the blood. Endoscopic biopsies are used in places like the bladder, colon, or lung. During this procedure, a tube called an endoscope is inserted into the open areas like mouth, nostrils or rectum. The endoscope will guide the physician to take to take out the samples using surgical tools. Needle biopsies or skin biopsy are used to collect skin samples, or for any tissue that is under the skin. Biopsy Skin Treatment is the most common type of all the three, and they use a biopsy punch technique for taking out the samples. After the tissue sample is taken, they are sent to the lab for testing. The results might be got only after a few days as this testing involves a rigorous process. Based on the result if cancer is diagnosed the doctor would advise on the further curse of action and treatments.
