In brief: Tissue Diagnosis
I presume that you had a radiologic study and/or examination that showed an abnormality for which a doctor recommended a biopsy.
While the above studies may be helpful, they are usually not 100% diagnostic. A biopsy provides tissue to evaluate under the microscope for definitive diagnosis.
