They have to do a biopsy to establish the presence of cancerous cells in your body during hysterectomy. Hysterectomy is basically the surgical removal or confiscation of a woman's uterus. During a biopsy, an instrument or device is used to remove some small pieces of cervical tissue. This sample is then analyzed by a pathologist.
Hi, again, dapplebaby. Yes, it's standard operating procedure, any time any tissue is removed, it will be biopsied, just to be super careful. I'm sure there's little to nothing to worry about, but as I said before, I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Take care.
