Biopsy

Biopsy

A biopsy is the removal of tissue from any part of the body to examine it for disease. Some may remove a small tissue sample with a needle while others may surgically remove a suspicious nodule or lump.

Most needle biopsies are performed on an outpatient basis with minimal preparation. Your doctor will give you instructions based on the type of biopsy being performed. Tell your doctor if there’s a possibility you are pregnant. Discuss any medications you’re taking, including blood thinners such as aspirin and herbal supplements, and whether you have any allergies – especially to anesthesia. Your physician will advise you to stop taking blood thinners for a specific period of time before your procedure, and you may be told not to eat or drink anything for eight hours beforehand.

Just want to tell you that I’ve been coming to your Yonge & Eglington office for years. Today there was a different person doing ultrasounds who was absolutely fantastic. Next time I’m due for an ultrasound I will follow her to wherever location she will be at. Very professional & very friendly. Please let her manager know how great she is. But probably knows it already. Thank you.

The ultrasound technician is fantastic! I had my ultrasound appointment switched to the Eglinton location last minute and she came to this location to do my ultrasound! She was on time very professional and very pleasant! She made me feel comfortable and I would recommend the Bluewater imaging located at Wilson and Keele location for future tests! Thank you for a good experience!
