Meditation eases anxiety, fatigue and pain for women undergoing breast cancer biopsies, according to researchers at the Duke Cancer Institute. They also found that music is effective, but to a lesser extent. The researchers note that adopting these simple, inexpensive interventions could be especially helpful in light of recent reports citing anxiety and pain as potential harms from breast cancer screenings and testing.
Core needle biopsy uses a hollow needle to remove samples of tissue from the breast. A pathologist studies these samples under a microscope to see if they contain cancer. If they do, more tests will be done to help plan your treatment.
For a breast biopsy, breast tissue may be removed with a special biopsy needle. Or it may be removed during surgery. To check a problem seen on a mammogram, such as small calcium deposits in breast tissue microcalcifications or a fluid-filled mass cyst.
A core needle biopsy uses a long, hollow tube to extract a sample of tissue. Here, a biopsy of a suspicious breast lump is being done. The sample is sent to a laboratory for testing. A needle biopsy is a procedure to obtain a sample of cells from your body for laboratory testing.

Breast biopsies can adversely affect short-term quality-of-life, and the effects are more pronounced in younger patients, according to a new study published online in the journal Radiology. More thanwomen in the United States have a breast biopsy each year. In the percutaneous method, a physician uses a needle to remove several small samples from the area of interest for pathological analysis. Percutaneous biopsies are associated with fewer complications than the surgical approach, but there are still significant short-term side effects, including pain and emotional distress.
