Biopsy is the removal of a tissue sample for histopathological diagnosis. We offer two different types of biopsy procedures.
The inside of the mouth is lined with mucosa, a special type of tissue that is smooth and pink in color. If you notice any significant changes in the appearance or texture of this tissue, this may be a sign of a developing disease or oral cancer.
Signs may be:
- Sores that bleed easily and do not heal
- Lumps or thick skin in the mouth
- Red or white patches in the mouth
- Persistent sore throat
- Difficulty with eating (chewing & swallowing)
If you feel that you are having symptoms, please contact our office to schedule a consultation.
