Breast Biopsy Options
A mammogram or ultrasound can locate an irregular area, but can not tell whether the area is cancerous. A breast biopsy will remove cells and or small pieces of tissue. Looking at suspicious tissue under the microscope, the pathologist is able to see details that tell if the area is cancerous or benign (normal). Most breast biopsies turn out to be normal. About 80%, or 4 out of 5, breast biopsies show benign tissue.
