Things to Look for: Lump, Skin Dimpling, Changes in Skin Color or Structure, Inverted Nipple, and Nipple Discharge

 

 

Breast Biopsy

 

A breast biopsy removes a sample of the breast tissue that is looked at under a microscope to check for breast cancer.  A breast biopsy is usually done to check a lump found during a breast examination if a suspicious area found on a mammogram, ultrasound, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

 

Lumpectomy

 

Lumpectomy is surgery to remove cancer or other abnormal tissue from your breast. Lumpectomy is also called breast-conserving or breast-sparing surgery because unlike a mastectomy only a portion of the breast is removed.
