Is biopsy suppressive?

I have(had)a small lump on my arm. Since taking thuja 30c (5 doses in about 2 weeks) the lump reduced in size .....although the scab remains unchanged and it itches.
Because I'm also experiencing the recurrence of enlarged sub mandible glands I thought I might go have the lump biopsied....however I have 2 concerns regarding biopsy
1) the lump reducing in size seems to be telling me that whatever I'm doing is allowing "expression". This ability to note progress feels somewhat valuable
2) I am concerned that if I get a biopsy of this lump/aka they take it all off... it will cause a suppressive reaction

I'm not asking you whether I should have a biopsy or not. Just if its suppressive to get one
Thank you! HAP

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
No. Think of it this way- remedies can be suppressive , symptoms
Can improve from remedies , but if they are not
Curative , you will keep having to repeat it.
Meanwhile, the real disease is still there , and can be getting worse.

Hello HAP

Biopsy is a procedure to examine a suspect tissue. The procedure is not going to be suppressive. But what follows in terms of treatment could be a different ball game altogether. In extreme cases suppression may be inevitable.

Thank you and I was basing my inquiry on having heard that having warts either removed by cutting them off or using something like salicylic acid was suppressive. So, I wondered if the same was true by having a biopsy(cutting off the lump in question for lab testing)
Thank you
