Except for a minor sting from the injected anesthesia, patients usually feel no pain before or during a procedure. After the procedure, some patients may experience some soreness and pain. Usually, an over-the-counter drug is sufficient to alleviate the discomfort.

5.What is X-ray guided breast biopsy?

X-ray guided breast biopsy is also known as stereotactic biopsy. During this procedure, a computerized mammography machine uses intersecting coordinates to pinpoint the area of tissue change.

X-ray guided breast biopsy is done when mammogram shows a suspicious mass that cannot be felt on breast examination, or a suspicious cluster of small calcium deposits, when the structure of breast tissue is distorted.
