Lianhe ZaoBao 联合早报 Feature: Vacuum-Assisted Breast Biopsy

In this Lianhe ZaoBao 联合早报 article, Dr. Tan Chuan Chien, SOG Consultant General Surgeon (Breast & Thyroid Surgery) talks about the benefits and risks of employing the vacuum-assisted breast biopsy technique as part of his investigations:

“Doctors sometimes recommend biopsies when there is an area of abnormality seen on breast scans. Vacuum-assisted breast biopsy allows sampling of larger amounts of tissue compared to other percutaneous biopsy techniques hence improves the accuracy. Some risks associated with this procedure include slight discomfort during the procedure, some bruising or bleeding at the breast after it.”
