Finding Answers to Build the Best Treatment Plans

A biopsy can provide important details about a mass that may have been found during a screening. Biopsies determine if a growth is cancerous or benign and, if cancerous, can identify the stage of cancer. This helps your doctor create a tailored treatment plan.

At AdventHealth Lake Wales, our diagnostic imaging team works closely with your physician to offer several types of biopsy. These procedures are guided by imaging technology, like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or ultrasound.

Needle Biopsy
Fine-needle or core-needle biopsies are used to extract cells or a small core of tissue.

Stereotactic Biopsy
Computer and imaging technology are used to guide a needle to a precise spot where a tissue sample can be collected.

Open or Surgical Biopsy
A sample of the growth, or the entire growth, is taken through a small incision in the skin.
