Biopsy Question

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This might be a dumb questions but I'll ask anyway. Is the biopsy for dh something that it easily done in the doctor's office (similar to having a shave biopsy for a mole) or is it something that must be done in the hospital as an out patient?

Jane, it's an easily done in office procedure. I have read though where others report that you will have a scar from it so pick your place ~~~ in other words not on your face or somewhere like that. They do a punch biopsy.

P.S. There is never a dumb question on here. The old saying ~~~ The only dumb question is the one not asked.

Jane, I had the Biopsy for DH. The punch biopsy was one part of the test... The area was numbed and I left the Dr's office with 4 stitches.. No noticeable scaring in my case... Go to a Dermatologist that's currently treating cases of DH.... I saw four Dermatologists in 30 years and my current one did the biopsy on my first visit... Two weeks later my diet changed, along with the quality of my life..
