Excision Biopsy of Ulcers


A biopsy is a method for diagnosing diseases where a sample of tissue or cells are removed for examination by a pathologist, generally under a microscope. An excision biopsy refers to a biopsy in which the doctor surgically removes a whole mass or targeted area for testing. Excision Biopsy of Ulcers is helpful for determining whether the ulceration is caused by NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Excision Biopsy in the small intestine is also used for assessing patients who have malabsorption, anaemia, or celiac disease.
