Why Is an Ultrasound-Guided Breast Biopsy Done?
An ultrasound-guided breast biopsy may be recommended by your doctor for a variety of reasons. These may include the following:
- During an examination, your doctor detects a lump or thickening in your breast, and your doctor suspects breast cancer.
- Your mammography images reveal an abnormal spot in your breast.
- An unusual finding is discovered during a breast ultrasound scan or MRI.
- Unusual changes in your breasts such as crusting, scaling, dimpling skin, or a bloody discharge.
