Stereotactic Breast Biopsy [English] Permalink Public

A recent mammogram or ultrasound shows a change in your breast tissue. Many tissue changes are harmless, but we want to make sure the change is normal. The only way to be sure your breast is healthy is to remove a small piece of tissue, called a biopsy (sounds like bye-op-see). This pamphlet describes the procedure and how to prepare for it.

A surgical breast biopsy is done in the Operating Room. You are given either a general anesthetic (medicine that puts you in a very deep sleep) or a sedative. The surgeon injects numbing medicine to ‘freeze’ the breast. The surgeon then makes a small cut (incision) in the breast and locates the mass. The tissue is removed and sent to the hospital laboratory to examine for abnormalities. Replaces catalogue #265493 (English) Black & White
