Soft Tissue Biopsies IN SPOKANE VALLEY, WA
Visual oral cancer screenings are performed routinely during dental exams in our practice. Occasionally an irregularity in the soft tissue is detected that elicits concern. Upon finding an irregularity, the decision may be made to remove all or part of the tissue in question. A pathology specialist will then examine the tissue specimen under high magnification to determine if cancerous cells are present. This procedure is termed a biopsy and it allows for a more accurate diagnosis.
Most often this procedure is relatively quick and results in minimal discomfort. If you have any oral tissue irregularities that you may be concerned with, please do not hesitate to schedule an appointment.
