Detecting Mesothelioma Caused By Asbestos Exposure
A tissue biopsy involves removing a growth on the body to evaluate its cancer risk in a laboratory. It is a very common form of cancer testing. If you were exposed to asbestos in your career or through a second party, it is important to be aware of your risk for developing mesothelioma—a rare but potentially deadly form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos fibers. Be sure to tell your doctor about your history of asbestos exposure.

What Should I Know About Tissue Biopsies?
Doctors utilize three different types of biopsies to confirm or eliminate
the possibility of mesothelioma:
- Open biopsies are conducted under general anesthesia. Your doctor will remove tissue from the area of concern.
- Closed biopsies involve a tiny cut through which the doctor inserts a scope. There is a very short recovery time in these types of procedures.
- Needle biopsies require removal of tissue through a syringe using X-ray imaging / CT scans for precision.
