I just had core needle biopsy on my right breast yesterday. I have a small lump that needed to be tested to see if it is cancerous. The Doctor took out about 4 to 5 of tissue samples out of my breast which i think is normal for standard biopsy test. I have relatively small chest (32A size) and I am concerned that if core biopsy may have changed the size of my breast or flatted it due to taking out too much tissue from my small breast. I can feel my right breast is relatively smaller than my left breast and became smaller than before. Is this possible? I hope this is not the case but it feels like my right breast has become smaller after biopsy was done. When I compared my right breast to left side, the right breast was visibly smaller/flatter than the left breast. I can even feel my right breast smaller than left side when i touched them. Can someone please tells me if it is possible to disfigure the size of the breast by doing biopsy!!! I am already nervous about the result but on the top of that, the fear of dis-figuration makes me even more anxious.
