Skin Biopsy and Excision

Skin Biopsy and Excision – Biopsies and excision of benign skin lesions, suspicious moles and skin cancers are performed under local anaesthetic.

A skin biopsy is the removal of a small piece of skin which is subsequently examined by a pathologist to help diagnosing certain skin problems. It is usually undertaken using a local anaesthetic injection to numb the area. After the procedure, a suture and dressing may be required to the site of the biopsy. Aftercare will be discussed in clinic and the histological diagnosis is usually available within 5-10 working days.

A skin excision is used to completely remove suspicious moles or skin cancers as well as certain benign lesions causing discomfort. It plays a role in both diagnosis as well as treatment of the lesion.
