Breast Biopsy

Breast Biopsy

Dr. Kennedy
Breast biopsy is a procedure in which a sample of a suspicious breast growth is removed and examined, usually for the presence of cancer. The sample is suctioned out through a needle or removed surgically. A breast biopsy may be done in a doctor’s office, outpatient facility, or hospital operating room. The setting depends on the size and location of the growth, the patient’s general health, and the type of biopsy performed.
