Biopsy is a medical procedure of the removal of a sample from a tissue for diagnosis and examination of diseases. Needle and surgical biopsy are the main types of biopsies. Breast biopsy is the surgical or minimally invasive procedure of removal of cells from an abnormal part in the breast for examination and diagnosis. Breast biopsies are done to check whether a lump in the breast detected in a physical examination, mammography or other imaging studies is cancerous and if yes, whether it is benign or malignant. The patient is positioned lying face up on the examination table or turned slightly to the side and is given a local anesthetic into the breast to numb it. Pressing the transducer to the breast, the sonographer or radiologist locates the lesion. A very small nick is made in the skin at the site where the biopsy needle is to be inserted. The radiologist, monitoring the lesion site with the ultrasound probe, inserts the needle and advances it directly into the mass.

Breast Biopsy Device Market:  Drivers & Restraints

Global breast biopsy device market is witnessing high growth due to increasing prevalence of breast cancer. Breast biopsy is minimally invasive, leaves little or no scarring and can be performed in less than an hour. It is an efficient method to diagnose the presence of calcium deposits or masses that are not visible in imaging methods.Owing to lesser recovery time, people are opting for breast biopsy even in slightest probability of a suspicious mass, microcalcifications, distortion in the structure of the breast tissue, an area of abnormal tissue change or in the presence of a new mass or area of calcium deposits. As a result, the global breast biopsy device market is expected to register healthy CAGR during the forecast period. Risks such as bleeding during the procedure, discomfort and infection could hamper market growth through 2026.
