Dr Sivakumar Awareness talk

Surgical Oncology

“Does doing a biopsy make cancer spread faster? No! Dr Sivakumar Mahalingam, Senior Consultant, Department of Surgical Oncology at MGM Healthcare, shares with us what a biopsy is and whether or not it’ll cause cancer to spread faster. He says that a biopsy is a procedure performed on the patient to take a small tissue from the cancer cyst for examination. This procedure is done so that the cancer cells can be analysed properly and appropriate treatment can be given. Dr Sivakumar says that it’s a completely safe procedure and patients shouldn’t be misguided by common myths about biopsies.
