SCREENING AND DIAGNOSIS
Abnormal skin lesions appearing on the feet, which can look like stains, growths, or other abnormalities, should be checked by a physician or podiatrist. The first steps are to determine how long a lesion has been there, whether it has changed size, shape, or colour, and if so, how quickly the changes took place. A biopsy may be performed if the diagnosis is unclear or if your physician needs to determine the severity of the lesion. This procedure involves taking a small tissue sample that is then analyzed by a medical laboratory.
Our highly qualified medical staff regularly performs on-site biopsies of foot lesions. We partner with certified laboratories where the samples are sent and analyzed by pathologists. Cases that require surgical removal (tumours and benign lesions) are treated quickly by our team of experts in our private operating facility.
