Mouth Biopsy / Oral Pathology

A biopsy is required when there is a lump, lesions, or even unnatural visual quality to the skin around and within the mouth. It is done by taking either the whole affected area or a sample of the affected area.

Generally performed under a local anaesthetic, with a few stitches put in after the sample is taken. Depending on the patient this procedure does not require a full day off.

The sample is then sent off to pathology for analysis and the results will be available at your review appointment and if there is any further treatment required it will be discussed at this point.
