Biopsy, which is a diagnostic method, is the process of removing cells, fluid, or tissue from the area of the body where the disease is suspected, by surgical methods. It is used for the definitive diagnosis of many diseases, especially cancer.
What is A Biopsy?
Biopsy, which is the process of taking tissue from the area thought to be a disease or mass in the body, can be performed using different needles without the need for open surgery. In the presence of a mass in the suspected organ, the relevant area can be clearly identified by imaging the biopsy method. The procedure, which is mostly done to determine whether the tissue or tumor is benign or malignant, is also done to determine the stage and course of the disease in some infectious or inflammatory diseases.
How is A Biopsy Done?
Biopsy, which has no health hazard when performed by a specialist physician under appropriate conditions, is performed using different equipment and techniques depending on the organ where it is performed. Some biopsies are performed with imaging, some are performed during and after surgery, and some are performed under local anesthesia.
