The biopsy technique that should be used when sampling a pigmented lesion may not always be readily apparent. The final arbiter is whether the specimen that will be generated will be representative of the entire process so that an accurate and complete diagnosis will be able to be rendered. In some cases, melanoma may not be clinically suspected so that it is essential that any biopsy that is performed will detect these lesions.
