Biopsy (Definition)

Biopsy is tissue removed by needle or cutting to remove part of a body part. It is usually a small amount of material that is processed by a pathologist. Most of the time it is stained and looked at through a microscope to arrive at a diagnosis. Special processes are done for some tissues or problems. The purpose is to tell what the problem is (diagnosis). ...Read more

Does cornea eye thickness test hurt?

Does cornea eye thickness test hurt?

No pain: There is a slight stinging from the numbing drop applied before the test. The test touches the center of the cornea with an ultrasonic, tiny probe which you will not feel. One touch is all and the data is recorded. Not a test to be worried about in the least. ...Read more

Pigmented lesion ..Back...Biopsy sheets dermoepidermal junction  nests pigmented bland looking round cells &nuclei.......Whats diagnosis plz?

Sounds benign: This description sounds like a benign mole or what a pathologist would call a junctional nevus. There should be a final diagnosis on the report in addition to the description. Doesn't sound worrisome or atypical to me. ...Read more

Pap result: mild inflam. background, superficial & intermed. squamous cells w/ benign endocervical cells; history of 2 irreg. paps. Colposcopy needed?

Pap result: mild inflam. background, superficial & intermed. squamous cells w/ benign endocervical cells; history of 2 irreg. paps. Colposcopy needed?

No: If read accurately, your Pap smear indicates an inflammatory or infectious process - not a premalignant one. Colposcopy is not indicated now but you need to be checked to see what is causing the inflammation...clear the inflammation...repeat the pap...and only then have a colposcopy if the Pap smear shows premalignant cells. You could also be tested for high-risk HPV. ...Read more

Leep shows hsil cin3 w/ endocervical gland involvement. Exocervical margins positive. Endocervical margins clear. Pap in 3 months or cone biopsy now?

Leep shows hsil cin3 w/ endocervical gland involvement. Exocervical margins positive.  Endocervical margins clear.  Pap in 3 months or cone biopsy now?

At least PAP, may: Require bone biopsy later. From the information you provided, you have residual abnormal cells in the cervix and at a minimum you need to monitor the process by pap. Three months is not likely to cause irreversible changes for the worse and you can wait to see the pap results to decide, in consultation with your doctor, if cone biopsy is needed. ...Read more

Dsek prem.Iol & cornea slipped, vis 20/70. Dr. Lifted cornea & it wrinkled.  2nd cornea trnsplnt but dev. Cme.Shots ok but blurry distance vision.  ?

A lot of info here: There is a lot going on here, but sounds like some of the common problems with such a procedure. You will not have good vision as long as you have cme. Sometimes with dsek you can't get 20/20 but worse than 20/40 is unusual. If you have a multifocal iol with a dsek, i suspect that could give diminished vision as well. ...Read more

Is liver biopsy painful?

It's not a bee sting: Despite using a local anesthetic, a liver biopsy is at best uncomfortable. A rather large gauge needle is used. Goes through the skin and muscle on the side of your abdomen and into the liver. Once there, the worse is over, pain wise. ...Read more

Help me interpret vulvar biopsy. Focal squamous atypia. Ki-67 shows mild increase cell proliferation focal vin can't be excluded. Lichen sclerosis?

Nothing serious yet: This report suggests slightly abnormal changes (atypia & increased cell proliferation) which can be a reaction to irritation but there is no definitive evidence of precancerous change (VIN). In short there is nothing to worry about right now unless you are concerned and you'd like a second opinion ...Read more

Shave biopsy on mole. Derm used dermatoscope & said it was scratched. Biopsy not atypical w/ inflammation. Doc wanted 3 more slides to 2x check. Why?

Shave biopsy on mole. Derm used dermatoscope & said it was scratched. Biopsy not atypical w/ inflammation. Doc wanted 3 more slides to 2x check. Why?

Not sure: When you say "doc wanted 3 more slides to 2x check" I am not sure what you mean. Did you mean the doctor wanted to do another procedure on you to "confirm" the diagnosis? Or did he want the pathologist to take more sections from the same specimen? Sometimes "inflamed" moles can look pretty worrisome and the pathologist will take more samples from the whole specimen. ...Read more

Not if done right: Lungs have very few nerve endings within the lung.
