fibroadenoma needel biopsy???
Tue, 11-24-2009 - 7:59pm

Just diagnosed with a possible fibroadenoma (benign tumor). I have to go in for a small needle biopsy next week. I am still nursing my 11 month old. Surgeon says the biospy should not interfere w/ nursing at all.

Anyone have any experience with this?

No experience but be sure to bf or pump just prior to the procedure so you'll be more comfortable and so the surgeon has an easier time finding the lump. Take a pump with you in case the procedure gets delayed. You don't want to go into this with engorged breasts.

How nice the surgeon isn't asking you to wean or any of the common misinformation we often hear.

Hopefully it will all go well. Please get back with any follow up questions and/or updates.
