An incisional biopsy is a skin treatment procedure offered by our expert team at Birmingham Dermatology Clinic that involves the removal of any rashes or lesions found on the surface of the skin for in-depth laboratory analysis.
This allows our dermatologists to identify and diagnose any potentially harmful skin conditions that could be impacting your overall health, as well as remove any occurring skin abnormalities, such as skin tags and warts, from the surface of the skin for cosmetic reasons.
It is vital that any skin abnormalities that could be found to be directly impacting your overall health are removed and taken for in-depth laboratory analysis, allowing our team to accurately identify and diagnose any underlying issues.
Early detection can save lives, so seeking out treatment as soon as you notice any suspicious imperfections on the surface of your skin, such as irregularly shaped moles or moles that have grown in size, will allow our dermatologists to begin with any necessary treatment as quickly as possible.
Early detection and treatment is key for a positive prognosis, so if you’re worried about any skin abnormalities or imperfections but don’t want to wait around for the quality treatment that you deserve, get in touch with our dermatologists. Our team are on hand to schedule in your consultation as soon as possible, meaning you won’t be left on the waiting list.

What does an Incisional Biopsy involve?
To carry out your incisional biopsy procedure, one of our experienced surgeons at Birmingham Dermatology Clinic will use a small scalpel to remove a sample of both your skin abnormality and the deeper layers of normal skin, through or down to the fatty layer of your skin. This sample then undergoes in-depth clinical examination in which our team will work to both accurately identify and diagnose any skin conditions or health conditions that may be present. Your appointment will be followed up with a consultation from our dermatologists to discuss your diagnosis and any treatment that may be necessary. An incisional biopsy is a minimal procedure that should only be expected to last for around thirty minutes, and our team will always work to provide you with the best possible quality of care.
To detect melanoma early, it is important to examine your skin on a regular basis.
