Learn more about Biopsies

Doctors may call an area of abnormal tissue a lesion, a tumor, or a mass.

  • Why are biopsies done?

    Biopsies are most often done to look for signs of cancer. But biopsies can also help identify other conditions.

    A biopsy might be recommended by your doctor whenever a biopsy may lead to additional information about your health, such as as mole on the skin that has changed shape recently and melanoma is possible.
