Skin conditions can cause a great deal of irritation and pain, or lead to bigger problems down the line. A skin biopsy can help diagnose your skin complaint or completely remove the affected area of skin.
What happens during a skin biopsy?
- Shave biopsy - only the top layer of your skin will be removed.
- Punch biopsy - a deeper, circular sample of your skin will be removed.
- Incisional biopsy - a scalpel will be used to remove a larger sample of skin.
- Excisional biopsy- the whole area of concern will be removed.
