General Info about Skin Biopsy

Advertisement
Skin biopsy is taken when there is an infection or disease in the skin, which requires further examination.

A small piece of tissue is cut with the help of the blade/ knife under sterile conditions, after cleaning the surface of the skin.

Then the skin surface is stitched together, leaving a very small, almost invisible scar.
