Malignant Melanoma is a very serious and potentially deadly skin cancer which is diagnosed by punch biopsy in this case. Any mole which is changing should be evaluated, especially if it has Asymmetrical appearance, Border irregularity, Color variation, Diameter greater than 6 mm, or Evolving shape, size, or color.

Basal Cell Carcinoma Shave Biopsy | Auburn Medical Group
 
03:33
A shave biopsy is obtained to rule out basal cell carcinoma as the diagnosis of this skin lesion. The pathology results were positive, meaning that this lesion is INDEED a basal cell carcinoma. The margins were not clear of tumor, so the patient will have additional evaluation by a Dermatologist where several options for definitive treatment will probably be offered. This type of skin cancer is normally very treatable and rarely results in significant effects on people's health.

Basal Cell Biopsy | Auburn Medical Group
 
09:09
A large shave biopsy is performed on a patient's arm to rule-out squamous cell carcinoma or basal cell carcinoma. Johnny had a suspicious skin lesion which could very likely be a form of skin cancer. We have options for how to address suspicious lesions like this. They fall into two major categories of biopsy and destruction. A biopsy is a sampling of the lesion, sometimes the entire lesion to establish a definitive diagnosis through an evaluation of the sample. The biopsies we obtain are treated chemically to allow a Pathologist to cut the lesion into microscopically thin slices which are evaluated with a microscope. Special stains are used on the sample to help distinguish various types of diseases and cancers in this evaluation. Once we know that a cancer is present, we want to know if all of the cancer was removed. This is evaluated by seeing if the edge of the cancer is contained in the sample obtained or if it goes all the way to the edge of the specimen, either the deep margin or the lateral margins. This determines if further excision will need to be done on the patient to completely remove the cancer. Some types of cancer can be observed if they extend the edge, others require re-excision. Some cancers can be destroyed or completely removed by cutting them out or burning them with laser, electricity, or liquid nitrogen. This is limited to cancers which are less threatening and easier to treat. Sometimes our shave biopsies for non-pigmented skin cancers are done like Johnny’s, being careful to completely remove the lesion in the biopsy, in hopes that any cancer will be completely removed. We will often do this approach when we suspect basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma. It is not appropriate for suspected malignant melanoma which tends to be more aggressive and spreads to distant areas of the body. If we find that Johnny had a basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma, and it was completely removed, we will have him come back for routine skin checks annually. If you enjoyed this option of having more explanation please let us know in the comments. We thank you for liking, commenting, sharing, and subscribing.

Two dermatology skin biopsies: An angioma & a cutaneous horn
 
02:36
These are skin conditions we see on nearly a daily basis, and here you can see how a dermatologist biopsies two areas. The first is an angioma, which is a benign vascular abnomality. There are also called cherry angiomas, and 100% of us get at least one by 18 years old. They don't need to be removed, but those that are raised can be bothersome. The second biopsy is of a cutaneous horn, a squamous cell carcinoma, a type of skin cancer, growing upwards and outwards, creating a horn-like growth. When a biopsy confirms the diagnosis of this type of skin cancer, further treatment with an excision or other treatment is probably required to make sure the skin cancer is removed completely. The good news about this type of skin cancer, is that it is locally destructive when it is this small in size - it is not life-threatening, but needs to be removed completely so that it won't grow larger and become more locally destructive. Thank you for watching!!
Biopsy - What You Need To Know
 
00:47
A biopsy is a procedure that removes cells or tissue from your body. A doctor called a pathologist looks at the cells or tissue under a microscope to check for damage or disease. The pathologist may also do other tests on it. Biopsies can be done on all parts of the body. In most cases, a biopsy is the only test that can tell for sure if a suspicious area is cancer. But biopsies are performed for many other reasons too. There are different types of biopsies. A needle biopsy removes tissue with a needle passed through your skin to the site of the problem. Other kinds of biopsies may require surgery.

Skin Biopsy
 
02:24
A skin biopsy is taking a small piece of skin for diagnosis by looking at the contents under a microscope. There are a variety of things that may require a biopsy: suspicious lesions like moles, skin rashes, or other conditions that are visible on the skin. There are different types of biopsies which include shave, punch, and excision. These biopsies heal very well and usually within a few weeks.

Punch biopsy taken from upper ear to check for cancer

In this video you will see how to take a punch biopsy, in this case it's on the upper ear. The area is marked out, numbed with local anaesthetic and then a biopsy is taken with a punch tool (like a spud gun), a single stitch is used to close the wound and dressing is applied. The whole process took around 30 minutes and was performed at Pontefract Hospital. The staff were absolutely fantastic and put Mam at ease strait from the go - she's terrified of needles!

Skin Cancer - Symptom, Causes & Diagnosis (Finding Earth)
 
06:04
Skin cancer There are three major types of skin cancers: basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and melanoma. The first two skin cancers are grouped together as non-melanoma skin cancers. Symptoms of skin cancer (non-melanoma) Basal cell carcinoma Squamous cell carcinoma Bowen's disease symptoms of melanoma The ABCDE rule : it is another guide to the usual signs of melanoma. A is for Asymmetry: One half of a mole or birthmark does not match the other. • B is for Border: The edges are irregular, ragged, notched, or blurred. • C is for Color: The color is not the same all over and may include shades of brown or black, or sometimes with patches of pink, red, white, or blue. • D is for Diameter: The spot is larger than 6 millimeters across, although melanomas can sometimes be smaller than this. • E is for Evolving: The mole is changing in size, shape, or color. Some melanomas do not fit the rules described above Other warning signs are: • A sore that does not heal • Spread of pigment from the border of a spot into surrounding skin • Redness or a new swelling beyond the border • itchiness, tenderness, or pain • Change in the surface of a mole – scaliness, oozing, bleeding, Causes of skin cancer Most skin cancer is caused by ultraviolet (UV) light damaging the DNA in skin cells. The main source of UV light is sunlight. types of UV light: • ultraviolet A (UVA) • ultraviolet B (UVB) • ultraviolet C (UVC) Increased risk Certain factors are believed to increase chances of developing skin cancer, including: • pale skin that does not tan easily • blonde hair • blue eyes • older age • a large number of moles • a large number of freckles • a condition that suppresses your immune system, such as HIV • past History of skin cancer • skin cancer in the family • radiation exposure • A weak immune system • Human papilloma virus (HPV) Exposure to Chemicals like • Coal tar • Soot • Pitch • Creosote • Petroleum products, such as mineral oil or motor oil • Shale oils • Arsenic Other skin conditions Psoriasis Solar keratosis Xeroderma pigmentosum Gorlin’s syndrome Birthmarks some types of birthmark in the outer layer of skin can increase the risk of developing a type of skin cancer called basal cell carcinoma (BCC). Diagnosis Medical history and physical exam Usually the first step the doctor takes is to get a medical history. During the physical exam, your doctor will note the size, shape, color, and texture of the area(s) in question, and whether they are bleeding, oozing, or crusting. Skin biopsy If the doctor thinks a spot might be a melanoma, a sample of skin will be removed from the suspicious area and sent to a lab to be looked at under a microscope. This is called a skin biopsy. Shave biopsy Punch biopsy Incisional and excisional biopsies Fine needle aspiration biopsy Surgical lymph node biopsy Sentinel lymph node biopsy Chest x-ray This test may be done to help determine whether melanoma has spread to the lungs. Computed tomography (CT) scan The CT scan uses x-rays to make detailed, cross-sectional images of your body. Unlike a regular x-ray, CT scans can show the detail in soft tissues (such as internal organs). CT-guided needle biopsy: CT scans can also be used to help guide a biopsy needle into a suspicious area within the body. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan Like CT scans, MRI scans give detailed images of soft tissues in the body. But MRI scans use radio waves and strong magnets instead of x-rays to create pictures. A contrast material might be injected, just as with CT scans, Positron emission tomography (PET) scan A PET scan can help show if the cancer has spread to lymph nodes or other parts of the body. It is most useful in people with more advanced stages of cancer Blood tests Blood tests aren’t used to diagnose melanoma, but some tests may be done before or during treatment, especially for more advanced melanomas.

Basal Cell Carcinoma of the nose is biopsied with a punch biopsy instrument to confirm the diagnosis before deciding on treatment options. Both superficial and nodular type basal cell carcinoma were found to be present at the peripheral edge, but the deep margin was clear. Treatment options include Moh's surgery, topical chemotherapy, or cryotherapy. We chose to treat with topical imiquimod in this case, based on the evidence in the article: Imiquimod cream efficacy in the treatment of periocular nodular basal cell carcinoma: a non-randomized trial. de Macedo EM, Carneiro RC, de Lima PP, Silva BG, Matayoshi S - BMC Ophthalmol - January 1, 2015; 15 (); 35 MEDLINE is the source for the citation and abstract for this record New videos are posted on Friday afternoons.

Excision of a skin cancer, a keratoacanthoma, filmed with my GoPro
 
09:18
This lovely patient of mine had a biopsy proven keratoacanthoma, which is a form of a type of skin cancer called a squamous cell carcinoma. These are usually quick growing skin cancer that most commonly occurs on sun exposed skin. They grow up quickly and often have a central scab - they look a lot like a miniature volcano of skin that erupts in a short time. Since these grow large quickly, these are often a source of major concern for a patient, but the good new is, that when a keratacanthoma is this size, it is not likely life threatening. However, it needs to be removed completely, because it is locally destructive to the skin. Although you can't see much before we remove the skin cancer, this patient did have a small eruptive growth on her forearm, which we biopsied a few weeks prior to confirm the diagnosis. We scheduled a return appointment to excise the skin around the area to ensure that the skin cancer doesn't reoccur. She is so sweet to allow us to film this procedure, so that people in a similar predicament know what to expect.

Removal of a Basal Cell Cancer Using a Punch Biopsy
 
07:01
This patient has had a number of underlying cancers and was having some pain from a smaller lesion along his right preauricular space. This lesion appeared to be most consistent with a basal cell cancer, which pathology confirmed, but to be certain, and potentially remove it, I elected to do a punch biopsy. At the midpoint of this procedure you'll see me try to pick up the tissue and it continues to 'slip' out from the grip of the forceps. This shows you the value of the right tools. Had I had a pair of Adson's forceps (toothed forceps) this wouldn't have been a problem. This healed nicely and no longer caused this patient any pain. Normally, upon receiving the pathology diagnosis a slightly more extensive procedure would have ensued to make sure the area was clear of disease but as this patient was palliative, that was not performed.

How a Liquid Biopsy Changes Cancer Treatment
 
04:12
Alex Sarmiento, 77, has good reason to feel optimistic about his future. Three years ago, Alex was diagnosed with prostate cancer and the disease had spread to other parts of his body. "I asked Dr. Nanus, 'Should I retire?" said Dr. Ida Tiongco, Alex's wife. "Because if your husband is dying you want to enjoy the last years of your life together." At first Alex's condition with treatment remained stable. But in April, after a trip to visit family in the Philippines, his health rapidly declined. "I was weak and exhausted," he said. "I thought it was jet lag." Ida said her husband was twice put in the hospital and given debilitating rounds of chemotherapy. "When you have cancer there is really no relief," she said. Instead of getting better, Alex was getting weaker. New York Presbyterian's Dr. David Nanus, chief of hematology and medical oncology, decided to give Alex a "liquid biopsy." This diagnostic test with the help of technology is being used in new innovative ways. Dr. Scott Tagawa is an oncologist at New York Presbyterian. "If someone develops advanced cancer... metastatic cancer – that is, individual cells from the tumor breaking off and landing somewhere else," Dr. Tagawa said. "As those cells travel around in the blood we can capture them in a test tube. We could then take those individual cells from the test tube and analyze them." The test is relatively non-invasive. In the past, in order to get tumor cells from a patient, a doctor had to do surgery or biopsy. Now a nurse draws blood from the arm, like what happens in a routine blood test. The blood sample is taken to a laboratory in the hospital. The sample is put into a machine called a CellCelector. Using the CellCelector, the lab technician can isolate cancer cells from the healthy blood cells. Images of the cancerous cells are then projected on computer screen to be studied by a doctor. The pictures can reveal what kind of tumor it is, the DNA of the tumor, and it if the cancerous tumor is becoming resistant to a drug. The results of the liquid biopsy help doctors customize a treatment for the patient because it can determine the type of tumor a patient has and what medicine will work best in treating it. Dr. Tagawa said it also allows him to figure out why a patient's tumor is becoming more resistant and get ahead of that. Some doctors say the liquid biopsy has revolutionized oncology. The results allow doctors to track the progression of a disease in real time. You could have liquid biopsy every day. Essentially removing the guess work allowing doctors to prescribe the right treatment. Dr. Nanus said that within a week the results from Alex's liquid biopsy showed that he had a certain kind of mutation. So Dr. Nanus was able to quickly make a treatment decision and prescribe the right drug. Just a few months into his new treatment, Alex's health dramatically improved. --SHARON CROWLEY

Unlike most other skin other conditions, you cannot diagnose a condition of the skin by dong a blood test. This is why we do something called as the skin biopsy. The skin biopsy is usually an investigation which we usually suspect that clinically or by identified by the sign and the symptom of the patient to diagnose the disease or we think that doing a biopsy is going to give a more clear insight as to what is happening in the skin itself. Skin biopsies are indicated for a various number of lesion including infectious skin conditions, including autoimmune skin conditions, blistering disorders, disorders which don’t respond to conventional treatment and of course skin cancer. Though the biopsy connutes or gives you an idea or saying that we are looking for something very suspicious or very very scary. Skin biopsies are very very commonly done patient procedure. Mostly it is done to rule out any infectious or inflammatory conditions. It is not that they have a high index of suspicion of cancer. We look for basically these conditions. There are special stains done to look for any particular fungal or bacterial infections or any kind of inflammatory disorders, that is what we look for in a skin biopsy.

Punch Biopsy.....Easy way of Biopsy from Oral Cavity
 
03:21
A punch biopsy is done with a circular blade ranging in size from 1 mm to 8 mm. The blade, which is attached to a pencil-like handle, producing a cylindrical core of tissue. Some punch biopsies are shaped like an ellipse, although one can accomplish the same desired shape with a standard scalpel. The 1 mm and 1.5 mm punch are ideal for locations where cosmetic appearance is difficult to accomplish with the shave method. Minimal bleeding is noted with the 1 mm punch, and often the wound is left to heal without stitching for the smaller punch biopsies.
