BREAST BIOPSY DESCRIPTION
Breast biopsy by needle aspiration is the removal of fluid in a lump or cyst from one of the breasts.
REASONS FOR BREAST BIOPSY PROCEDURE
Diagnosis of a thickening or lump so that treatment and follow-up can be properly planned.
BREAST BIOPSY RISK FACTORS
DESCRIPTION OF BREAST BIOPSY PROCEDURE
A local will usually be administered. A small hollow needle is inserted into the thickening or lump.
If the thickening or lump is a cyst, fluid usually can be removed and the cyst will shrink or disappear. This is often considered both diagnostic and therapeutic.
In some cases, the removed fluid is sent to the laboratory to be examined for abnormal cells. If a solid tumor is detected, tissue is removed through the needle for laboratory examination. The needle is withdrawn; pressure is exerted on the site of the biopsy, then a bandage is applied.
BREAST BIOPSY EXPECTED OUTCOME
Usually, the results will show normal breast tissue without abnormal cells. Most lumps are fluid-filled cysts. Abnormal tissue may exhibit a wide range of benign or malignant cells and follow-up tests will be conducted to determine the exact diagnosis. Expect complete healing from the procedure without complications.
BREAST BIOPSY POTENTIAL COMPLICATIONS
Infection in surgical area (rare). Collection of blood (hematoma) under the skin where the needle was inserted.
BREAST BIOPSY POST PROCEDURE CARE
Use an electric heating pad or a warm compress to relieve minor pain in the surgical area. Bathe and shower as usual. You may wash the incision gently with mild unscented soap. Wear a supportive bra. Apply bandages to the biopsy site, and change them as directed.
You may use non-prescription drugs, such as acetaminophen, for minor pain.
ACTIVITY RECOMMENDATIONS & RESTRICTIONS
To help recovery and aid your well-being, resume daily activities, including work, as soon as you are able. Allow about 1 week for recovery from surgery. Avoid vigorous exercise for 2 weeks after surgery.
DIET & NUTRITION
No special diet. However, you should continue to follow a well-balanced, nutritious dietary plan for a strong immune system and fast recovery from surgery.
