What is biopsy

Biopsy is a medical examination procedure in which a small sample of tissue is taken and examined under a microscope. Tissue samples can be taken from anywhere in a person’s body except the skin, stomach, kidney, liver and lungs. Biopsy is usually done to find out the root cause of diseases in a person and to treat different types of health problems. Apart from this, it is done to identify abnormal cells and to detect certain diseases. Biopsy can also be used to measure how serious or advanced a disease is.
