Does a fine needle aspiration hurt the breast?

In brief: Minimally invasive

Fine needle biopsy is the least traumatic way to get a true tissue diagnosis of an abnormality.
If done properly there is little tissue trauma and rarely leaves a detectable mark. Little, if any sign of trauma is usually seen even after just a few days after fna under the microscope in cases that get surgery quickly after fna.
