What does a Punch Biopsy involve?
During the punch biopsy procedure, our dermatologists will remove any suspicious skin imperfections, such as abnormal moles, from the surface of your skin for in-depth examination, allowing us to accurately diagnose any occurring skin conditions or health issues and subsequently follow up with the best treatment for you.
A punch biopsy can be used to diagnose and treat a range of skin diseases and conditions, such as:
• Skin cancer, including
-basal cell carcinoma
-squamous cell carcinoma
• Bullous pemphigoid and other blistering skin disorders
• Inflammatory skin conditions
• Suspicious moles
• Skin tags
Within this procedure, a qualified member of our team will use a small circular tool to remove a small sample of skin for testing. This is a minimal procedure that should only be expected to last around thirty minutes and will be followed up with a second appointment to discuss your diagnosis and any necessary treatment.
To detect melanoma early, it is important to examine your skin on a regular basis.
