A skin biopsy is a procedure commonly performed for the diagnosis of various skin lesions and rashes. During this procedure, an area of skin (tissue) is numbed, and a small piece of tissue is removed and sent for processing. The microscopic slides prepared from the tissue are then examined. Depending upon the type of lesion, one of the following four types of biopsies may be performed:

  • Punch biopsy – will require one or more stitches
  • Shave biopsy – no stitches necessary
  • Incisional biopsy – often requires stitches
  • Excisional biopsy – will require stitches
