Healing: Healing varies greatly based upon age, general health, medical conditions, medications taken, care of wound, types of foods ingested, and largely based upon location and size of tissue excised for biopsy. Discuss this issue with the doctor who performed the biopsy and is responsible for your care and well-being.
