“A breast biopsy should be performed in the case of an unknown and suspicious breast nodule, even though the degree of suspicion is low”

Thanks to the development of image-guided breast biopsy methods during the last two decades, surgical biopsy has practically disappeared, and is limited only to some isolated cases.

Breast imaging methods, primarily mammography, ultrasound, and MRI, have also been greatly improved, increasing their sensitivity and specificity.

Despite the improvement in imaging methods, we must perform a histological analysis, specifically a breast biopsy, when we are faced with a suspicious breast lesion, even though the degree of suspicion is low.
