Patient Comments: Breast Biopsy - Types

What kind of breast biopsy procedure did you undergo? Please describe your experience.

Comment from: mimi, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: April 11

I had an ultrasound core biopsy on the 24th march, due to a suspicious micro calcification cluster. I felt a sharp pain when anesthesia was injected, but felt nothing afterwards. Ten samples were taken in all. Now 8 days on I've still got pain in the area and a large bruise. But that doesn't matter as because of biopsy I've been given all clear. I've got benign calcified fibroadenoma.
