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.

Stitches on penis from biopsy. Received oral and stitches were ripped. It's been 10 days since the procedure. What should I do?
See surgeon ASAP: I would imagine that your surgeon didn't anticipate your having oral sex while still with stiches in your penis. As anyone's mouth is full of bacteria, this was a bad idea, and if the stiches ripped it might be a worse one. I would seek an urgent appointment and in the meantime wash thoroughly and keep it clean until you see the surgeon. ...Read more

Why stitches open up? I had biopsy excision to remove a lump on base of penis. What is the best option to close up the wound again.
Pulled through flesh: A stitch pierces through flesh on each side of an incision. If the flesh is fragile, if the flesh is only a small amount, or if there is tension on the flesh, the stitch can pull through the flesh. If the stitch is new, a patient can call the surgeon right away, to see if something else can be done to close the opened spot today. If the stitch is older, the doctor might let the wound heal "as is". ...Read more

Had biospy five years ago 3 different seems still no answer says I had perivascalur dermititis on glans and under gland of penis no itching pain scars?
Had a ultrasound last week. Have edometrial stripe of 6.1,small complex cyst, and mild free fluid in pelvis. Scheduled for end/biopsy. Worried!
Probably normal: The endometrial stripe measurement would be thick if you were past menopause. The biopsy is to check the tissue and make sure nothing worrisome is occurring. The cyst may be resolving on it's own (which is why the free fluid in the pelvis) but may be followed with ultrasound. If no resolution further evaluation may be necessary. ...Read more
Can lichen sclerosus happen to a circumcised penis as I been on numerous creams lotions over the years and biospy showed post inflammatory changes?
Yes: This is a diagnosis seen on the head (glans) of the penis, typically young boys. Antihistamine does not reduce the itch and does nothing for this. Hydrocortisone cream is fine if it helps, but probably won't. Best remedy is clobetasol ointment. If it helps, you may need it for a long time. Circumcision is not relevant. ...Read more
Penis skin cracked and peeled badly on glans and under leaving paler skin painful sensitivity to anything biospy no lichen sclerous psoriasis etc help?
Try...: Great; chronic protracted benign skin conditions and skin cancer are ruled out with biopsy, now, it's logical to handle with keeping the affected area from further chemical and physical irritations if any, applying thin 1% Hydrocortisone cream daily x 7 days and see. If it's related with long foreskin, do circumcision. Detial? See doc timely. But it's hard to make DX without a direct look at it. ...Read more
