Biopsies are procedures that remove tissue from any part of the body for sampling. These tests are performed by numbing the area (like a dentist does) and using a special needle to remove a small amount of tissue from the area of concern. The tissue is examined by a pathologist and a diagnosis made.
If the tissue shows cancer cells, additional studies are needed, but can all be done on the original tissue sample so no other procedures are needed.
