Cervical disc biopsy (samples taken under the control of a colposcope) and cervical canal biopsy are diagnostic procedures performed with abnormal (questionable) HPV and LBC cytology test results. The tests are performed under local anesthesia (without putting the patient to sleep),
Endometrial Aspiration Biopsy – is a diagnostic procedure aimed at collecting endometrial fragments and then histopathological evaluation of the collected material. The procedure is painless, does not require general anesthesia and therefore does not require a hospital stay. It is performed during a visit to a gynecological office. The most common indications for the procedure are:
-Abnormal, irregular vaginal bleeding
– abnormal ultrasound images of the endometrium and uterine cavity
– diagnostic doubts, suspicion of neoplastic disease
Endometrial Aspiration Biopsy can replace the popular “cleaning” – curettage of the uterine cavity. It is associated with a much lower risk of surgery, with less stress for patients, and allows patients to save time and avoid hospital stay.
Targeted fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB – performed under ultrasound guidance to visualize the needle position in the lesion) is a method of collecting cellular material for its cytological evaluation. FNAB is used for the diagnostic purposes of focal lesions in various organs, especially the nipples, thyroid gland, salivary glands, and lymph nodes to assess whether the lesions are benign, suspicious or malignant.
The needles used are small in diameter, so no anesthesia is necessary.
