Will breast biopsy make your breast damaged and possibly have a problem in lactation in the future?

In brief: Not likely
Usually a breast biopsy is by stereotactic means.
This is the insertion of a needle into the breast. The amount of damage done to the breast is relatively small and should not significantly impact on the overall function of the breast in producing milk. If the biopsy is via surgery the damage may overall be more but again should not impact on the overall function.
