What can a doctor be looking for when he does a biopsy on both palms of hands after repeated swelling and skin lesions on both hands with high elevated white blood cell count?

Hi Kentucky51 and welcome to ehealth: There are various forms of skin cancer or lesions...I would say that he is doing a very thorough check so that he doesn't miss anything...Sounds like a good doctor to me...Take care...
