Hi.. Biopsy is a test done to study the cells and to help in the diagnosis of a serious problem such as a tumour.. Well the good news is that it is not any thing like a cancer.. Since it is an ulceration, this is not of major concern.. However occasionall it can turn to become cancerous, so keep a watch on it and report if there is any changes in the symptoms and clinical appearance..
