General Biopsy Surgery PreOp Patient Engagement and Education
Your doctor has recommended that you undergo a biopsy procedure or lumpectomy. But what does that actually mean Biopsy is a general term which simply means the removal of tissue for microscopic examination. Your doctor intends to remove tissue from your body, not because you're necessarily ill, but because biopsy is a very accurate method for analyzing unusual growths or other suspicious tissue. Because it provides such accurate diagnostic information, biopsy is an important diagnostic tool in the fight against cancer. In your case, you have a suspicious lump or other tissue which needs to be examined. It.

The body is made of many different kinds of tissues and those tissues are all subject to change during the course of a normal lifetime. Usually, a thickening or lump turns out to be benign, or harmless, and often requires no treatment. In some cases, lumps are malignant tumors, caused by the growth of cancerous cells. These growths need to be treated as rapidly as possible.
In order to learn more about the nature of the suspicious tissue, your doctor would like to surgically remove it. Most likely, you're feeling some anxiety about this procedure, which is perfectly understandable. You should realize that it's natural to feel apprehensive about any kind of biopsy. But ignoring a suspicious growth won't make it go away. If you're feeling anxious, try to remember that the purpose of a biopsy is simply to find out what is going on in your body so that if you do have a problem, it can be diagnosed.
And treated as quickly as possible. If you should decide not to allow your doctor to perform the biopsy, you'll be leaving yourself at risk for medical problems. If the suspicious tissue in your breast is benign, most likely you'll suffer few if any complications. However, if it is cancerous, and it is allowed to grow unchecked you might be putting your own life at risk.

Your tissue specimen will be sent immediately to a lab for microscopic analysis. Your doctor.
