Because side effects are not expected, people typically need to call their doctors only for biopsy results. Ask your doctor when you can expect to get the results of your biopsy. Table 3 Breast CNB accuracy according to gauge, lesion type, lesion size and calcifications Full size table. By setting up a flow of reference and counter-reference for this disease, with demand control, it would be possible to speed up the first specialized consultation and anticipate diagnosis. Forty-four patients with nonpalpable invasive carcinoma had a 25 percent rate of positive axillary lymph nodes. Conclusion: Breast emergencies are uncommon but require prompt identification and management when they do occur.

Stereotaxic vacuum-assisted large-core biopsy is used for microcalcifications needle 8 or 11 gauge. In the SGHMP mastology sector, in order to obtain specimens from palpable breast tumor, CNB has replaced surgical biopsy, being a minimally invasive procedure. Evaluation and indications of ultrasound-guided vacuum-assisted core needle breast biopsy. The social relevance of this study is the evaluation of the accuracy of the association of CNB with frozen section histopathology in breast tumors, the control being the paraffin histopathology. Therefore, one may raise the question about whether ultrasound-guided CNB with smaller needles, such as 16G and 18G, can have diagnostic value for ultrasound-visible lesions, and if there is any difference in the accuracy of biopsies of breast lesions with different imaging features. Diagnostic value of fine-needle aspiration biopsy for breast mass: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Role of the Funder This project was funded under Contract No.
