 Care of Your Biopsy Site

 

If Dr. Kyle has recently performed a biopsy on you, here are instructions for proper care, and information on what to expect.

  • Keep bandage on for 24 hours
  • Remove bandage and cleanse twice daily with running water and soap
  • Apply Polysporin (double antibiotic) Ointment twice daily
  • You may cover area or leave open to air
  • If your biopsy site has stitches, take care not to shave over them

Mild swelling, tenderness, bruising or bleeding is normal

    • Bruising and swelling can be helped by elevating area and applying a bag of frozen peas or an atheletic ice pack wrapped in tissue to protect the skin
    • For discomfort, you can take over the counter Tylenol
    • Mild bleeding can be controlled by applying 15 minutes of firm, uninterrupted pressure directly over biopsy site

Contact our office for:

    • Bleeding that does not stop after pressure
    • Redness that is expanding after the first 2 days
    • Tenderness not controlled with Tylenol
    • If green discharge or puss comes from biopsy site
    • Other concerns
