[Number of biopsies for AGC]

Previous | List | Next

How many biopsies do you take for suspected advanced gastric cancer (AGC)? I would recommend 6 biopsies for AGC. Four biopsies from the edges and two biopsies from the bottom is usually enough for pathological diagnosis. The more the better? No, I don't think so. Too many biopsies are not efficient in terms of the cost and the labor.
