Excerpt

This guide compares core-needle biopsy with open surgical biopsy for diagnosing breast lesions. It also summarizes the accuracy and possible harms of various core-needle biopsy methods. This guide does not discuss fine needle aspiration, another method for sampling breast tissue that provides a smaller tissue sample than core-needle biopsy.
