Use Of Anesthesia For Biopsy Of The Neck Gland?
I will do a biopsy tomorrow for the glands in the neck, but I am afraid of the pain received, because I do not use general anesthesia. Does the pain equal to total anesthesia? What is felt and must be done when biopsy?
Hello Risyad, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
There are several types of anesthesia, and are chosen according to the type of surgery.
- Local anesthesia: blocking sensation or pain in the area of the body to be operated on. Usually this is for minor operations, such as biopsy of the skin, etc.
- Regional anesthesia: blocking pain in some parts of the body.
- General anesthesia / general anesthesia: anesthesia procedures that make the patient unconscious during the operation. Used for large operations.
Anesthesia works by stopping or blocking nerve signals from the pain center that the patient will feel during the operation. So take it easy, you will not feel pain when undergoing the operation. Because the way all anesthetics work is the same.
All you need to do during surgery or in the operating room is that you simply follow the instructions that the doctor or nurse ordered. If you have more questions, you can ask your doctor directly.
