Second set of Biopsies - jenniferS10

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on March 1, 2012 View this journey (3 Experiences)

After having my first biopsy, I knew what to expect; it was slightly comforting.They had given me an MRI and every small piece of tissue that appeared to be "abnormal" on the MRI results was biopsied....I think it was 8 or 9 spots with multiple samples taken from each. All the spots were in the same breast as the tumor I had found.

To be honest, it was a LONG, somewhat, painful procedure that I would rather not have had to do. But more cancer was found and this really helped me to make the decision to have a double mastectomy.
