A breast biopsy involves the removal of a small piece of your breast tissue for diagnostic testing, which may be recommended if you have an abnormal mammogram or a lump. Our pathologists then can determine whether your cells are cancerous.


Our surgical team will determine the best way to obtain your tissue sample, based on the size and location of your breast abnormality. We will use the most minimally invasive procedure possible. Depending on whether cancer cells are present, we may recommend that you get a MRI scan to determine the stage or spread of your cancer. You also may be a candidate for removal of non-cancerous calcifications.
