Biopsy reports are necessary to diagnose skin cancer at an early stage so that aggressive medical treatment can begin to combat this deadly disease. When a biopsy report is produced by the lab and provided to the doctor, the doctor is required to read the report and make proper recommendation. The failure to request a biopsy and the delay in treatment for a patient with an abnormal biopsy can give rise to a medical malpractice lawsuit.
