What you need to know about Lung Biopsy in Selangor

A lung biopsy is a procedure that involves removing a very small sample of lung tissue to be examined under a microscope for signs of disease. Your doctor may ask you to have a lung biopsy if something out of the ordinary is spotted on your chest X-ray or CT scan. The goal of this procedure is to create an accurate diagnosis.

A lung biopsy can be used to:

  • Determine whether a lung muss is benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous)

  • Stage lung cancer

  • Identify the cause of inflammation in the lung

  • Monitor the progression of lung disease

  • Investigate the cause of unexplained fluid collection

  • Diagnose a lung infection.

There may be other reasons for your doctor to recommend a lung biopsy.

What's the Recovery Time?

You will need to take it easy and rest as much as possible for a day or two after lung biopsy. It is important that you avoid strenuous activity for a week. If you have an open biopsy, the recovery time until you can resume your activity may take longer.

What's the Success Rate?

Lung biopsy is a safe procedure with a high success and accuracy rates. It is reported that percutaneous transthoracic lung needle biopsy has a success rate of 88 to 97%. However, the procedure does carry some risk. These include bleeding, coughing up blood, infection, and collapsed lung.
