A breast biopsy is performed to remove some cells from a suspicious area in the breast and examine them under a microscope to determine a diagnosis.
Types of Breast Biopsies
Each type of biopsy has pros and cons. The choice of which type to use depends on things like:
- How suspicious the tumor looks
- How big it is, where it is in the breast
- How many tumors there are
- Other medical problems you might have
- Your personal preference
We perform different types of biopsies and our specialist will choose the best option for your biopsy according to your health situation.
