Stomach Biopsy

Stomach biopsy, also known as gastric biopsy, is done for diagnosing a wide range of conditions. This procedure helps to remove a small amount of gastric tissue, which is then sent to a lab for the examination of harmful organisms or tumors. Stomach biopsy is done with the help of endoscopy, where a thin, flexible tube that is inserted through the mouth is used to extract the tissue sample.
