Skin BiopsyA biopsy consists of taking a sample of the skin in order to examine it to diagnose possible pathologies. It is a common examination that dermatologists perform to determine the origin or cause of a skin disease or tumor.
The procedure consists of the extraction of a small amount from an affected area of the skin, that sample is subsequently taken to an expert who examines it under a microscope and diagnoses or rules out possible pathologies that the patient may suffer. There are different methods to perform a skin biopsy: by punch, by excision, with a punch, among others. It will be the specialist dermatologist who, in consultation, will determine which is the best technique to use depending on the injury and the patient.
