Facial wound from biopsy still open after 5 yrs. Any suggestions?
Doctor Answers 1
I am sorry to hear about your troubles. If a biopsy was taken 5 years ago and the wound will not heal I would get it checked again by a physician. They will likely want to re-biopsy it. Non-healing wounds are concerning for a skin cancer but could be caused by other things as well. Regardless, this is not normal and should be re-evaluated.
