Biopsy or Removal of Nasal Lesions

After the biopsy we will determine if you will need a follow-up procedure.

As with other parts of the body, the nose can develop polyps and other lesions growing within it. We biopsy or remove a small piece of the lesion from the tissue from the lining of the nose so that we can run tests and Dr. Davis can recommend further treatment if necessary.

Common Nasal Lesions:
Polyps, benign tumors called papilloma. Malignant tumors are very rare.

Common Symptoms of Nasal Lesions:
Nasal congestion, blockage on one side of the nose, bleeding and postnasal drainage into the back of the throat.

What to Expect

Dr. Davis performs this procedure in the office. Under local anesthesia, he gently places a small endoscope into the nostril and then uses a tiny instrument to remove a sample of tissue or in some cases the entire lesion. The tissue is sent to the lab and evaluated. Results are reviewed at a follow up appointment in about a week. There is no down time following the procedure but patients should take it easy for 48 hours.
