Biopsy is tissue removed by needle or cutting to remove part of a body part. It is usually a small amount of material that is processed by a pathologist. Most of the time it is stained and looked at through a microscope to arrive at a diagnosis. Special processes are done for some tissues or problems. The purpose is to tell what the problem is (diagnosis). ...Read more
Rarely: Breast cancer surgeons have learned a lot from our plastic surgery colleagues and now try to apply many of the same principles that they follow with breast surgery so that we can, first and foremost, remove what we need to, but do so with minimal aesthetic changes. Of course, the size of the tumor relative to the breast and it's location will have an effect, but most patients have minimal changes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Does vacuum assisted breast biopsy cause cancer from thre trauma? Biopsy was negative (normal breast tissue)
Nope: Congrats on the benign results! we have been performing core biopsies for over 30 years and have not found any association between benign biopsies and cancer development. Moreover, surgical biopsies are more "traumatic"--we've been doing those for 100+ years without any increased cancer risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bloodwork was fine except TSH was 5.6 benign breast biopsy tender breast 4 months after biopsy period 8 days early, short and lighter. Ultrasound good?
TSH is high: Hi. You could have early subclinical hypothyroidism. I'd repeat TSH, get free T4, and thyroid peroxidase and thyroglobulin autoantibodies. If the picture holds, you have early Hashimoto's. In that case, I wouldn't wait for it to get worse to treat it. Good luck! PS, I'm glad the biopsy was benign! ...Read more
Probably the prep: Most cyst aspirations are done with an antiseptic prep, usually betadine. If the rash is not raised, firm, or hot; you can probably just take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and see if it gets better. If you have any signs of infection (drainage, swelling, redness, pain) call your surgeon asap. If the redness worsens, call also. Take care & good luck with your biopsy results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lots of options: Basically there are 2 options for breast reconstruction after tumor resection. Option #1 is to move some of the patient's own tissue from another site to the breast. This is a great option, but not for everyone, as the surgery can be long and complicated. Option #2 is to use a breast implant to replace the missing breast tissue. Best to discuss with a board certified plastic surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Usually before.: Sentinel lymph node biopsy is usually done at the time of lumpectomy for breast cancer. The information gained is used in the decision making as to whether adjuvant chemotherapy should be given to increase the likelihood of cure. Rarely, it might be done after chemotherapy if the initial role of chemo was to shrink the tumor to allow surgery (neoadjuvant chemotherapy). ...Read more
Does a growing lump on a one-stage immediate breast reconstruction after mastectomy because of cancer followed by a tissue flap procedure meancancer?
Must get it checked: A new lump doesn't necessarily mean cancer, but you definitely must get it checked out to be sure. New lumps can appear after mastectomy and reconstruction, more with flap surgery than implants. More often than not, it is fat necrosis (hard fat) or scar tissue. Fat turns hard when the blood supply to that area isn't quite as good as it should be. Neither fat necrosis or scar tissue are harmful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
