Surgical Excision

An excision biopsy is a surgical procedure to remove a portion of tissue from the body for diagnostic purposes. The tissue removed during the procedure is commonly called a biopsy specimen. The tissue is then examined under a microscope to determine if there is any abnormal growth or disease present.

Excision biopsy is performed under local anesthesia. Incision is made in the skin and removes a portion of the tissue using a scalpel or other surgical instruments. The incision is then closed with sutures. 

The benefits of excision biopsy include its accuracy in diagnosing certain conditions, its ability to provide a tissue sample for further analysis, and its minimally invasive nature.
