they removed it.. they cut and took it out..should antibiotics have been prescribed on follow up?
Thanks for the additional information. Usually no antibiotic are prescribed after biopsy. If there is severe pain and redness then antibiotics are prescribed.The incision site must be kept clean and dry, and a follow-up visit to check on healing is usually necessary.
