Can A Private Biopsy in Canada Be Beneficial?
A biopsy is an examination of tissue that has been removed or extracted from the body. This is done for the purpose of determining the presence, cause or extent of a certain disease. A doctor will recommend a biopsy when an initial imaging test or physical examination suggests an area of tissue that isn’t normal. As with most medical procedures in Canada, there can be a wait for a biopsy. To avoid the wait, an option would be to have a private biopsy in Canada or the US done.
Most times when a biopsy is ordered, they are looking for cancer, but there can be other reasons. This is often a very stressful and worrisome time for the person that needs to have one. If you have to wait a month to have this done, the waiting time in-between can be unbearable. Fortunately, this can be solved by opting to have a private biopsy. This will not only shorten the anxiety period but can also get you into a specialist much sooner should there be a need to see one.
