Minimally Invasive Breast Biopsy


Minimally Invasive Breast Biopsy is a procedure to remove a small sample of breast tissue for laboratory testing, without the need for surgery. This technique is a less invasive alternative to traditional open biopsy, which involves making a larger incision in the breast.
The most common reason for a breast biopsy is to investigate a suspicious lump or abnormality found during a mammogram, ultrasound, or physical exam. A biopsy may also be recommended to monitor changes in a known benign (non-cancerous) breast condition or to evaluate nipple discharge.
There are no specific symptoms associated with a minimally invasive breast biopsy. Patients may experience some discomfort during the procedure, which is usually mild and brief.
A minimally invasive breast biopsy can help diagnose breast cancer or other breast conditions. The biopsy sample is sent to a laboratory for analysis by a pathologist, who examines the tissue under a microscope.
Minimally invasive breast biopsy is primarily a diagnostic procedure, but in some cases, the biopsy may also be used to remove a small tumor or abnormality. Treatment options for breast cancer depend on the type and stage of cancer and may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy.


Minimally invasive breast biopsy is generally a safe procedure, but like any medical procedure, it does carry some risks, such as bleeding, infection, and damage to nearby structures. Patients should discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure with their healthcare provider before undergoing the biopsy. It is also important to follow any instructions provided by the healthcare provider, such as avoiding certain medications before the biopsy.
