If you or your doctor notice a lump or any other abnormality in your breast, your doctor may suspect breast disease.
Because it is not possible to determine what kind of breast disease is present through observation alone, your doctor may refer you for further testing, which may include performing a biopsy.
The pathologist will examine the breast tissue biopsy sample and provide a diagnosis that will help your doctor formulate the most appropriate treatment plan for you.
