In brief: Biopsy

A needle biopsy may be performed under local anesthesia in an office setting without much pain.
Dcis can only be diagnosed by direct tissue examination.

And if a needle biopsy is negative, a full excisional biopsy (a small surgery) may be needed.

In brief: Biopsy

First get a mamogram depending on what it shows, needle aspiration biopsy.
