CALL FOR ABSTRACT 12THGHUCG TRACK 22: LIVER BIOPSY
What is a liver biopsy?
A liver biopsy is a medical operation in which a small piece of liver tissue is surgically removed so it may be evaluated in a laboratory.
Liver biopsies are frequently done to evaluate illness, such as cirrhosis, or to discover infection, inflammation, or malignant cells. Your doctor may perform a liver biopsy if blood or imaging tests indicate there are abnormalities with your liver. The liver is an imperative organ. It performs various functions essential to the body’s operation and survival, including:
Generates proteins and enzymes important for critical metabolic functions, Removing toxins from the blood, fighting illness, and storing vitamins and nutrients.
Why a liver biopsy is carried out
Your physician may order a liver biopsy to detect if an area is infected, inflammatory, or malignant, or to assess the severity of liver damage.
- Among the symptoms a physician would test for are:
- Digestive system difficulties
- Chronic stomach discomfort right upper quadrant abdominal mass
- Laboratory results indicate that the liver is a cause for concern.
- Normal indications for a liver biopsy include abnormal results from other liver tests, the presence of a tumour or mass on the liver, or persistent, unexplained fevers.
Despite the fact that imaging tests such as CT scans and X-rays can help identify regions of concern, they cannot always provide an exact diagnosis or select the most effective therapies. For this, a biopsy is required.
Although biopsies are commonly connected with cancer, receiving this test from your doctor does not necessarily indicate that you have cancer. Biopsies can enable physicians to determine if a condition other than cancer is the cause of a patient’s symptoms.
The risks associated with a liver biopsy
Any medical procedure requiring skin incision carries the risk of infection and bleeding.
Even though the incision for a liver biopsy is small, there is a danger of bleeding because the liver contains numerous blood veins.
