Breast Cancer – Diagnostics – Biopsy
Any suspicious finding must be carefully analyzed. Microscopic analysis of a tissue sample (biopsy) is the most reliable method for determining whether a tissue change is benign or malignant.
A biopsy is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia. It involves the removal of cells or tissues with a needle. This process is monitored continuously via ultrasound, X-ray, or MRI imaging.
The advantage: This quick, outpatient procedure causes hardly any injury at the insertion point (minimally invasive) – an adhesive bandage is usually sufficient. You are generally able to leave the clinic after a few hours.
