What is a Biopsy?


Q: What is a biopsy?⠀

A: A biopsy is the removal of tissue from any part of the body to examine it for disease.

Some may remove a small tissue sample with a needle while others may surgically remove a suspicious nodule or lump.

While a biopsy may sound scary, it’s important to remember that most are entirely pain-free and low-risk procedures. Depending on your situation, a piece of skin, tissue, organ, or suspected tumor will be surgically removed and sent to a lab for testing.

A breast biopsy is a test that removes tissue or sometimes fluid from the suspicious area. The removed cells are examined under a microscope and further tested to check for the presence of Breast Cancer

A biopsy is the ONLY diagnostic procedure that can definitely determine if the suspicious area is cancerous.
