Skin biopsy is used to diagnose or help treat skin conditions and diseases. It is a procedure to remove cells or skin samples from your body for laboratory examination. A doctor uses a skin biopsy to diagnose skin conditions and remove abnormal tissue.


Few of such skin conditions are:

• Blistering skin disorders

• Inflammatory skin conditions

• Skin cancers

• Skin infection

• Skin tags

• Suspicious moles

• Warts


There are three main ways to do a skin biopsy:

1. Punch Biopsy uses a special circular tool to remove the sample.

2. Shave Biopsy which removes the sample with a razor blade

3. Excisional Biopsy which removes the sample with small knife called a scalpel.
