Breast Biopsy

Breast biopsy enables the doctor to evaluate a suspicious area to determine whether or not it is breast cancer. The samples of tissue are used to identify and diagnose abnormalities. These abnormalities may appear in the cells that make up breast lumps, or may present in other unusual breast changes that are suspicious or concerning. There are several types of breast biopsy procedures. After the biopsy, the lab report will assist with determining if additional surgery or treatment is warranted. Windsong Breast Care Surgeons Dr. Katherine O’Donnell & Dr. Michael Peyser can be reached at 716-626-6300.
