We understand that the diagnosis of any breast condition can be a worrying and traumatic time for anyone. Finding a benign tumour can be a scary thing especially if you do not know your options and are left fearing the unknown. We’ve gathered together some of the available options for women who have been diagnosed with a benign breast tumour, giving you all the information you need to make an informed choice.
If you have found a breast lump through self examination, or have been told by a doctor that you have a shadow on your routine mammography screening you may require a breast biopsy. Of course, further tests such as a second mammogram or a breast ultrasound (imaging tests) will be carried out to fully discover the extent of your condition. However, if any of these tests show that the structure or appearance of the breast lump could potentially be cancerous, a biopsy will be requested to confirm whether or not there are cancerous cells.
