I'm really nervous and have to go into my local hospital clinic for a biopsy tomorrow morning. My right breast contains a lump and it has been ruled as a tumor. But we are not sure if it is malignant or benign. I'm not sure if anyone has had one of these types of biopsies before. I'm still not quite sure which one I'm due to have. The fine needle leaves no bruise and involves no anesthetic. The Breast core was the one explained to me by my doctor, which is more invasive and involves anesthetic and a small incision.
(My Doctor has ruled 5 days for the paperwork result. But he has said that he will ring the same afternoon to get a phone result. So I'm wondering if anyone got theirs by phone the same day and which biopsy did you have?). Thanks.
