Breast mass biopsy

We hear about breast cancer, which affects more women than men most of the time, but we have mentioned in previous articles about breast cancer, its factors, causes, prevention and treatment methods, and today we will talk about breast mass biopsy in breast treatment and how Examination and how to be a breast lump biopsy in addition to some advice as we have always come to you in our articles and medical advice provided by Isabel Medical Center in Istanbul.

There is a breast examination by means of self-examination, preferably after the menstrual cycle by touching and discovering that there is no lumpiness in the breast, especially in the armpit area, and anything noticeable must be reported to the specialist doctor immediately.

It is customary for a breast mass biopsy to determine if there is an abnormal area or a cancerous mass in the breast, and in a breast lump biopsy a sample is removed from the area of ​​concern and examined by a pathologist and may include one of three techniques Main:
1- Breast mass biopsy (fine needle aspiration): Here the doctor specializing in the biopsy of the breast mass through the fine needle aspiration will insert a needle into the breast and he will use some guiding forms such as the ultrasound path to direct the needle to the correct area, then he will remove fluid or A small sample of the tissue.
2- Breast lump biopsy (needle endodontic biopsy): In the procedure of needle endodontic biopsy in breast mass biopsy, several small pieces of tissue or nuclei of tissue are removed from the breast, and here the guidance may be made using several techniques and when performing this procedure from a biopsy A breast lump is where the patient lies on a dedicated table in which there is a hole in which to place the breasts, and the specialist doctor performs local anesthesia in order to numb the entire breast area and uses digital mammography as a guide and inserts a hollow needle into the area of ​​anxiety, and several small cylinders of tissue are removed. In order to perform the examination, while directing the ultrasound for the endodontic needle biopsy in the breast mass biopsy, the specialist doctor will use an ultrasound probe to locate the area of ​​concern and a hollow needle is inserted to remove several nuclei from the tissue.
Resorption needle and needle endodontic biopsies involve removing small samples of fluid or tissue using the needle, but in the event that a location of concern is detected by a digital mammogram (mammogram) or ultrasound it cannot be accessed by endodontic biopsy in a mass biopsy. The breast, or if the entire area should be removed, the specialist may recommend a surgical biopsy.
3- Surgical biopsy: In a breast lump biopsy, the surgical biopsy is performed in the operating room using two abstraction techniques (excisional biopsy and segmental biopsy).
During the removal of the unknown piece in this procedure from a breast lump biopsy, the specialist surgeon will make an incision in the breast area and remove the entire lump and after the end of the procedure close the incision, the specialist surgeon performs a segmental biopsy if only a small portion of the area needs to be removed. The excitement is usually for a diagnosis at the end of the procedure, the wound will be closed, and if the deformity cannot be felt, the needle position will be used to locate the excited area, and in this procedure the radiologist will insert a hook wire into the breast through a needle under a mammogram or ultrasound guidance. To determine the area and here, the needle will be removed, but the wire remains in place, then the patient or patient will go to the operating room, where the surgeon will make an incision in the breast and follow the wire to determine the target area and remove it, and a mammogram must be taken in order to ensure that the mass has been removed. And then the surgeon closes the incision completely.
Which of these three techniques in breast mass biopsy determines it and chooses the appropriate procedure by the competent doctor according to the patient’s condition appropriate to him.
