Biopsy Procedure

Dermatologists take biopsies to help diagnose if you have a skin cancer or other problem.

Sometimes people ask us to cut the area out and not do a biopsy first. While this is something that we occasionally do when we are very worried about the diagnosis, usually dermatologists like to fully understand what’s going on before they start any treatment. This helps them make sure they’re using the right approach. Getting a biopsy is a key step in finding out all the important details about what’s happening with the skin.
