Should you meet with a breast surgeon or a medical oncologist first? Find Out
The answer to this question is based on where the cancer has been found. For women who have a BRCA gene mutation, you can also discuss preventative mastectomy with your breast surgeon. Learn more about genetic testing for the BRCA gene mutation.
A breast biopsy is a diagnostic procedure to remove a small sample of breast tissue for laboratory testing.
When breast cancer leaves the breast it most often goes to the nearby lymph nodes next. Once cancer cells have entered the lymphatic system, different types of treatments will be needed to be sure all the cancer cells are killed. To find out if the cancer has started to grow in the lymph nodes, a biopsy is performed. Learn more about lymph node status.
You may want to review and consider your breast reconstruction options before breast cancer removal surgery to determine whether the removal surgery will include any procedures to prepare your body for reconstruction.
