Types of breast biopsies

  • Needle biopsy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a needle to remove a small sample of tissue from the breast. There are two types of needle biopsy:
    • Fine needle aspiration (FNA) uses a thin needle to remove a small sample of fluid or cells from the breast.
    • Core biopsy uses a thicker needle to remove a small core of tissue from the breast.

When is a breast biopsy done?

A breast biopsy may be done if a mammogram or other imaging test shows a suspicious area in the breast. A biopsy may also be done if a lump is found in the breast during a physical exam.

How is a breast biopsy done?

Needle biopsy can be done in the doctor’s office or in a radiology lab. The patient will lie on their side with their breast exposed. The doctor will numb the area with a local anesthetic. Then, the needle will be inserted into the breast and a small sample of tissue will be removed.
