What you need to know about Breast Biopsy in Selangor

A breast biopsy is a procedure to remove a sample of breast tissue for laboratory testing. It is the best way to evaluate if a suspicious area or a lump in your breast is cancerous. The procedure is usually performed if your doctor finds something questionable during a mammogram, MRI, clinical breast exam, or ultrasound. Your doctor may also recommend you to undergo the procedure if you experience symptoms of breast cancer, such as a breast lump, breast dimpling, skin thickening on the breast, nipple changes, nipple discharge, a red rash on the breast, enlarging veins on the breast, and an enlarged lymph node in the armpit.

A breast biopsy can detect inflammatory breast cancer, cancer of the breast ducts (ductal carcinoma), cancer of the lobules (lobular carcinoma), and rare cancer affecting the nipples (Paget’s disease).

It is important to remember that needing a breast biopsy does not necessarily mean you have breast cancer. In fact, about 80% of women who have a breast biopsy do not have breast cancer. However, a breast biopsy is required because it is the only way to know for sure if the lump or suspicious area is cancerous or may lead to breast cancer.

Before a breast biopsy, your doctor may detect a suspicious area or lump in your breasts, or you may experience symptoms similar to breast cancer. After a breast biopsy, you will know if the lump or suspicious area is benign, precancerous, or cancerous. The result will help you and your doctor plans your treatment.

What's the Recovery Time?

The recovery time depends on the type of breast biopsy you had and the type of anesthesia used. You generally should rest as much as possible for the remainder of the day and then resume your normal activities the day after. Still, you need to avoid strenuous activities for several days to avoid complications.

What's the Success Rate?

A breast biopsy is a safe and effective procedure with about 95% success rate. The test result of a breast biopsy will determine if the lump or suspect area in your breast is benign (noncancerous), precancerous, or cancerous. Only 20% of breast biopsy results come back as cancerous.

If the breast lump is found to be cancerous, a breast biopsy can also detect the type of cancer. The information obtained from the biopsy can be used to help plan your treatment, which may include:

  • A lumpectomy (a surgery to remove the tumor and preserve the breast)
  • A mastectomy (a surgery to remove the entire breast)
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Hormone therapy.

If the test revealed that the breast lump is noncancerous, the test will also tell the conditions that cause the lump, such as adenofibroma, fibrocystic breast disease, mammary fat necrosis, and intraductal papilloma.

Although breast biopsy is a very safe procedure, there are some risks associated with the procedure, including:

  • Swelling and bruising of the breast
  • Mild pain at the biopsy site
  • Infection or bleeding at the biopsy site
  • Altered breast appearance

There may be other risks depending on your specific medical problems as well.
