Biopsy offered at our Vancouver Centre

False Creek Healthcare Centre in Vancouver is offering one-day diagnosis for the following:

  • Prostate Cancer
  • Liver Cancer
  • Lymph Node Cancer
  • Thyroid Cancer

While diagnostic tests, such as X-rays, CT and MRI, are helpful in detecting areas of abnormality, they alone cannot differentiate cancerous cells from noncancerous cells. For the majority of cancers, the only way to make a definitive diagnosis is to have a biopsy.

What is a Biopsy?

A biopsy is a procedure to remove tissue samples from your body so that the cells can be analyzed in a Pathology Laboratory. False Creek Healthcare Centre offers immediate access to a full spectrum of pathology services. Our expert pathologists are dedicated to delivering diagnostic interpretation of biopsies and cytology samples quickly and accurately.

How to Prepare for your Biopsy

Your patient care coordinator will guide you and provide you with the information to prepare for your biopsy. You may be asked to stop taking medication that can make you bleed: Such as aspirin, Coumadin, anti-inflammatory medication.

How the Biopsy will feel

In a needle aspiration biopsy, you will feel a small sharp pinch. In a laparoscopic or open biopsy, a local or general anesthesia may be used to make the procedure pain free.
