Histology aims to diagnose and study diseases in tissue. It is a branch of anatomy that deals with the minute structure of tissues as discernible with the microscope.
Your doctor will advise a biopsy and histology if they are concerned with any moles, lumps or possible infections. You may also request a biopsy and histology if you have discovered an area of concern.
Bodyvie specialises in minor operative procedures and diagnostics. If you have a mole or skin lesion you are concerned with, or our doctors detect some abnormalities when removing moles and cysts, they will recommend histology be carried out. Bodyvie offers a complete range of testing and also bloods, which have the quickest turnaround times possible via it’s processing lab – The Doctors Laboratory.
When the tissue sample is examined under the microscope, abnormal cells can be spotted and identified, which can help diagnose a specific condition. If the condition is already known, a histology can be used to assess its severity, such as degree of inflammation or even the aggressiveness of the issue, for example with cancers. This information is very useful when deciding on the most appropriate treatment for a particular patient.
Bodyvie also offers urine samples to detect any possible infections. All testing is discreet and timely. Our doctors will thoroughly review your results and discuss them with you to ensure they are understood. They will provide advice on the best course of treatment for you following your biopsy and histology results, or other testing.
Histology can offer a sense of relief as well as the opportunity to gain an understanding of your health to make the best decision to remedy any concerns.
Biopsies and histologies vary dependent on the area of concern. Your doctor will determine the best method during your consultation.
You will only need one biopsy or histology per concern to determine the cause. Depending on the diagnosis, you may need further biopsies or histologies to monitor progress of the concern as treatment develops.
You will receive your results of your biopsy or histology within 7-10 days. You will be advised to schedule an appointment with your doctor to discuss your results.
