At Temple Terrace Primary Care, our physicians regularly perform biopsies of potentially abnormal lesions and skin growths to rule out the possibility of skin cancer or ensure that patients receive immediate care for a developing malignancy.

In most biopsies, a very small piece of tissue is removed via needle, scraping device or scalpel so that it can be microscopically evaluated for the presence of abnormal cells. Understanding that the most common forms of skin cancer can be effectively treated when detected early, and that the less common form – melanoma – is known for spreading quickly, time is of the essence in any skin cancer diagnosis. We are glad to be able to offer skin biopsies from the comfort of our Tampa office, and in many cases, provide treatment for a pre-cancerous condition. We can also refer you to some of the best specialists in Tampa for the treatment of more advanced malignancies and melanomas.

If you or someone you love has a spot on their skin that doesn’t quite look right, it’s better to err on the side of caution and have it medically evaluated as quickly as possible. Give us a call at 813.971.3135 or fill out an online appointment request form today.
