Why do I need a biopsy of my mouth?

October 9, 2019

An oral biopsy is a procedure used to diagnose conditions that may affect the lining of the mouth. A biopsy is often the only way to diagnose oral lesions and diseases.

A small sample of the affected area is taken, which is then viewed by a Pathologist under a microscope, to provide a diagnosis. This is the best way to ensure the condition is accurately diagnosed and to make sure the correct treatment is offered.
