Biopsy Examination For Lumps In The Shin?
… I have a lump around the shin … said the doctor must be biopsy … is the biopsy dangerous?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
A biopsy is a procedure for taking a small piece of tissue from a patient's body so that it can be examined under a microscope. Through this examination method, a lump can be identified as a benign or malignant tumor.
There are several types of biopsy, including: biopsy with a needle, biopsy with surgery, biopsy with tissue scrapings from the surface of the skin, and biopsy with endoscopy (using a camera-tube hose to see the inside of organs and to take tissue samples, for example in the digestive tract).
As with other medical procedures, biopsy has the possible risk of causing tissue injury that has the potential to cause bleeding, infection, and pain at the biopsy site. The higher the complexity of the lump and type of biopsy, the higher the risk of complications. It's just that, before the biopsy procedure is done, of course the doctor has considered whether the benefits obtained from working on this procedure outweigh the possible risk of complications.
Do not hesitate to consult directly with the doctor who treats you about biopsy information. To enrich insight, you can read articles about biopsy.
