In brief: Cells vs tissue

Fnacuses a small needle to dislodge cells to see i they are malignant.
Requires expertise of a cytopathologist to get accurate readings. Core biopsy uses much larger needles to obtain tissue and will be more accurate but may be more uncomfortable and occasionally lead to some bleeding.
