Frequently Asked Questions
What are some common symptoms that would necessitate making an appointment with a breast care specialist?
If you find a lump, notice skin redness or thickening, or experience bloody nipple discharge, you should see a specialist.
Which family medical history is more important, maternal or paternal?
Both are important. Please make sure you’re prepared to discuss your medical history comprehensively. We recommend speaking to your family prior to your appointment.
What do I need to know about my family medical history?
We will need to know which family member, what type of cancer they had, and their approximate age when diagnosed.
What is involved in a biopsy?
We perform minimally invasive ultrasound-guided and stereotactic/tomosynthesis biopsies. These procedures are done via a small incision (less than .5 cm) and closed with a steristrip (no stitches needed). If you’re concerned about any of the procedures we perform, please let us know so we can answer any and all questions.
