Your Pathology


Why do I need pathology performed?


During a skin check your doctor may wish to excise or biopsy one or more skin lesions. These tissue samples are sent to our pathologist to be inspected more closely to confirm your doctors diagnosis. This also helps to ensure that the lesion has been adequately removed.


What happens to my biopsy or excision?


The specimen is transported from your doctors room to the pathology laboratory. Here, the sample is studied by our pathologist who then sends the final report to your doctor.
