It’s normal for a woman’s breasts to change during her lifetime. They can grow in size, change in texture and may become tender or painful especially with breastfeeding or menopause. Your Inspira doctor will help navigate these changes, and recommend surgery when necessary.

Our Approach to Breast Surgery

Not all diseases and ailments in the breast are due to breast cancer. When it comes to these benign conditions, your Inspira provider will help you navigate your symptoms and treatment options.  

When changes in the breast cause pain or discomfort, your provider may recommend minimally-invasive surgery to correct the issue.  

Breast Biopsy 

In many cases, your provider will first confirm the nature of the condition with a breast biopsy

During a biopsy, your doctor will remove a tissue, cell or fluid sample from the affected breast for further examination under a microscope. A breast biopsy is typically performed as an outpatient procedure in which the patient is placed under local or general anesthesia. 

At Inspira, we use advanced techniques to ensure the biopsy process is as quick, painless and non-invasive as possible. We understand that awaiting results can be stressful. When screening reveals the need for a biopsy, we offer same-day appointments and our radiologists reach out within 48-72 hours with feedback. In some cases, results can be revealed on the same day that your biopsy is performed.
