Excisional Biopsy yesterday

plata1989 Member Posts: 4

A 20×8×8 mm hypoechoic spiculated mass with calcifications was confirmed by ultrasound after a screening and diagnostic mammogram in January. A core needle biopsy was scheduled for February 6th but I was unable to complete due to EXTREME sensitivity of nipple and aerola. Saw a surgeon in March and who was kind enough to arrange for ultrasound localization in the OR under general anesthesia and then she would immediately do the excisional biopsy. After waiting 5 weeks it was completed yesterday. So now I wait for the results, they should be available in the next 2 to 3 days.

Has anyone else had an excisional biopsy under general anesthesia with the ultrasound localization completed just prior?I would love to hear about your postoperative experience.

    I meant to post the above in the waiting for test results forum, but I am not sure how to move it.
