All patients will have the opportunity to view a video about the procedure prior to the biopsy. The biopsy will be offered to women at HerSpace the same day as the abnormality is detected on the mammogram or ultrasound, if desired, to alleviate the anxiety associated with waiting for an answer. If scheduling the biopsy for a later date, please carefully read the following instructions. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call us.
Eat a light breakfast the morning of your procedure.
Do not take aspirin for 7-10 days prior to the biopsy or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents for 3 days prior to the biopsy.
If you take coumadin, heparin or other anticoagulants, please tell our HerSpace staff so we can coordinate discontinuance of the medication and pre-biopsy bloodwork with your physician.
Bring prescription and any referral or precertifications, if required by your insurance company, on the day of your appointment.
