What is biopsy?
Prostate biopsy involves taking a tissue sample of a suspected tumor with a needle. Biopsy can be painful but is usually performed without anesthesia. Test answers usually take a couple of weeks. During surgery, larger pieces are taken for more certain diagnosis. The tissue sample is examined under a microscope and analyzed by a pathologist who determines whether the tumor is benign or malignant. With ProsMedic’s diagnostics, biopsies are redundant.
