Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page handout helps people prepare for a breast biopsy, which is the removal of a small piece of tissue for testing in a lab. It explains why the test is done, offers advice to help the patient prepare, and describes what will happen just before the test. The document discusses Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA), Core Needle Biopsy, Stereotactic Biopsy, and Open Excisional Biopsy, providing checkboxes where a healthcare provider can indicate which test is being ordered. The document makes recommendations for home care following the test, and identifies those symptoms for which a doctor should be called.
