Also known as: tissue biopsy, needle biopsy
When a sample of tissue is removed from the body in order to analyze it and look for signs of certain diseases, this is known as a biopsy. Biopsies of muscle, nerve and skin can be used to help diagnose a variety of different medical conditions, including nerve damage, muscle damage, cancer and more.
Biopsies of muscle, nerve and skin can be performed in many different ways. In many cases, biopsy samples can be gathered using an endoscope, which is a thin flexible tube that’s guided inside the body. Other biopsy samples can be gathered using a needle.
No special preparation is needed for this procedure.
