Incision

Incision

When incisional biopsy is contemplated, the biopsy site should be carefully considered. Much has been written about selecting a site at the periphery of a lesion to ensure the inclusion of healthy tissue. This site selection is certainly important in an ulcerated oral lesion. Selecting only the center of an ulcer results in an inadequate specimen devoid of mucosa. Some authors generalize this principle to nonulcerated lesions as well.
