Needle biopsy: A breast biopsy is usually performed using a needle to take a sample of the mass to determine what it is (diagnosis). If the mass is small enough, it can be entirely removed using the core needle. If it is a larger mass, then a surgical removal is needed. In these cases, the core needle biopsy should still be performed first. Surgery should not be the 1st option.
