Biopsy: See you doc to get evaluated for your risk factors and a physical exam. If warranted, a biopsy will determine the nature of your lesion. I wish you the best.

Examination: Usually one can tell just by examining the patient. If there is a question, a biopsy can be performed. Hope this helps.

Very good treatments: If you have KS, although there are specific medications for it, typically treating the underlying disease (AIDS) with take care of the KS. If you have been confirmed to have KS, you need to be under the treatment of an Infectious Diseases doctor or whoever handles HIV/AIDS in your area.
