Any suspicious skin lesion appearing on the feet, whether in the form of a spot, growth or other abnormality should be checked by a doctor or podiatrist.
The first step is to determine how long the lesion has been observed, whether the lesion has undergone changes in size, shape or color, and how quickly these changes have taken place. Sometimes a biopsy is ordered when there is a diagnostic doubt or when it is important to determine the severity of the lesion in question. The procedure involves removing a piece of tissue which is then analyzed by a pathology laboratory.
Foot biopsies are performed on a regular basis, at our facilities and by our highly qualified medical staff. We work in collaboration with certified laboratories where the lesions are analyzed by pathologists. Cases requiring surgical excision (swelling or benign abnormalities) are handled quickly and professionally in our own operating room.
