Diagnostic Biopsy

What happens after a breast biopsy?

A Answers (1)

  • The tissue obtained through FNA, stereotactic biopsy or surgery is then sent to the pathologist who will examine the tissue in the lab to determine if the cells are cancerous. Additionally, if the tissue is cancerous, the pathologist will determine what type of cancerous cells are present, which is critical in determining the best treatment for the disease.
