Meet the Cytopathologist

Return to the Breast Health Center main page

If there is a lump that can be felt on your breast exam, which is of concern to your or your doctor, an immediate biopsy will be performed by a cytopathologist, who will perform the biopsy using a thin needle to take out tissue. This fine needle aspiration biopsy is done using a thin needle that is much thinner than a needle used to draw blood. This simple, painless biopsy method enables the cytopathologist to immediately prepare slides and review them with the surgeon.
