Re: debating to have lip biopsy...need advice, story and labs inside
i had the lip biopsy. Its not too painful. I had positive lab tests for sjorgens before that and i am not really sure why the doc wanted the bx, maybe for positive confirmation. The treatment didnt change after i had the procedure. Like most auto immune diseases, sometimes positive confirmation can take a long time. If the lip bx will help you obtain a dx then i would recommend having the test. Good luck and i am sorry that you have had so many problems with this.
