A biopsy of a lesion of the skin can determine the difference between a skin cancer and a benign, non-cancerous, lesion. The skin sample obtained during a biopsy is sent to a laboratory for examination.
How is the biopsy performed?
A biopsy can almost always be performed on an outpatient basis in a physician’s office or at a clinic. A local anesthetic is used during the procedure.
