The Halsted Surgical Clinic is well-known for its medically hygienic and reliable biopsy procedures. Equipped with state-of-the-art machinery and specialists with unmatched expertise in breast disorders and breast screening, our services are impeccable when it comes to biopsies.

Types of Biopsies

Core Needle Biopsy
Fine Needle Aspiration
This biopsy procedure is done to make a proper diagnosis of suspected breast cancer. Core Needle Biopsy is highly preferred by doctors because it is a non-surgical procedure that allows to extract and examine more breast tissue. During the procedure, the person is given local anaesthesia to numb a particular area of the breast. A hollow needle attached to a spring-loaded tool is used to remove a core of the breast tissue.
Procedure For CNB
  • The suspected area is numbed with the help of an anaesthetic that is injected through a needle.
  • A small incision is made on the breast, and a needle is inserted through the opening.
  • Once the tissue is extracted, the needle is removed, and the opening is covered with a sterile dressing.
  • A nurse may apply pressure on the opening for a short period of time to help control the bleeding.
Outcome Of A CNB
  • A pathologist will examine the biopsy tissue or the extracted fluid to ascertain the presence of cancer cells.
  • A second biopsy may be suggested if the first one is not clear or if the doctor feels the need for further evaluation.
The FNA is a fairly quick procedure which does not involve any incisions, stitches or scars. The entire procedure takes about 20 to 30 minutes. During the process, a fine needle is used to extract tissues or fluids from the suspicious area. The sample is then thoroughly examined for cancer cells.
Procedure For FNA
  • The procedure starts with the person lying on his/her back, and the doctor uses an anaesthetic to numb the affected area.
  • The person lies still while the physician inserts a fine needle into the suspected area and extracts tissues or fluid.
  • The doctor may repeat the procedure a number of times to ensure the proper extraction of the sample.
  • Once the biopsy is complete, the area is thoroughly wiped and covered with a sterile dressing or bandage.
Outcome Of An FNA
  • A pathologist will check the extracted tissue or fluid for cancer cells.
  • The fluid is checked for its colour to ascertain if it is clear or bloody.
  • The doctor will further look for a smaller group of cells to make further examinations.
