Breast Awareness

Breast Awareness

It makes sense to be aware of your breasts and know what is normal for you. Each breast contains 15-20 groups of glands designed to produce milk. Channels from each gland join together (a bit like a bunch of grapes) and each cluster has a main duct which opens at the nipple. The glands are embedded in fatty tissue which gives the breasts their individual shape. By regularly checking your breasts you become aware of what is normal for you throughout the month. Familiar lumps and bumps that do not change over the months are not a cause for concern. If in doubt about any particular area of your breast, feel the other breast and if the lumpiness is the same on both sides, all you need do is check them again the following months. If you are still having periods, do this a few days after your period, if not, make it the first week of the month. Many women have breasts which are slightly different in size. If your breasts have always been like this there is no need to worry. However, if there is a change in the shape or size of one of your breasts, consult your doctor.

Breast Biopsy

Breast Biopsy

What is a breast biopsy?         A biopsy is a small piece of tissue that is removed by a special needle and checked in a pathology lab. Breast Biopsies are done under local anaesthesia and that means that you will be awake, but you will not feel any pain. Types of breast biopsies are:   • Ultrasound-guided core needle biopsy - This method uses ultrasound images. • Stereotactic biopsy - With this method, a 3D image of the breast is made using a computer and mammogram results. • Vacuum-assisted core biopsy - A small cut is made in the breast. A hollow probe is inserted through the cut. Fine needle aspiration (FNA) - A very thin needle is placed to see if the area is a fluid-filled sac (cyst). Why might I need a breast biopsy? • To check a problem seen on a mammogram, such as micro calcifications or a distortion in breast tissue. • To find out if a breast lump or mass is cancer (malignant) or not cancer (benign) • There may be other reasons for your doctor to recommend a breast biopsy What are the benefits and risks?         Benefits                    • The procedure is less invasive than the surgical biopsy and can be performed in less than an hour • Recovery time is brief and patients can soon resume their usual activities • Generally, the procedure is not painful • No breast defect remains and, unlike surgery, needle biopsy does not distort the breast tissue • X-rays usually have no side effects in the typical diagnostic range for this exam. However, the benefit of an accurate diagnosis far outweighs the risk Risks • There is a risk of bleeding and forming a hematoma at the biopsy site. The risk, however, is < 1/100 • The chance of infection requiring antibiotic treatment appears to be less than 1/ 1,000. • Bruising and mild pain at the biopsy site.
