Following mammogram and ultrasound I had a biopsy which came back ok but the consultant is slightly concerned that they may not have got excatly the right area so I now have to go back next week and they are going to do a vacuum biopsy.
Has anyone had one of these. Any after effects?
Im just telling myself they are being extra extra careful ...

It does sound like they are just being cautious. I think I just had a normal biopsy but if you repost on the tamoxifen thread ( new one has just started ) someone else might be able to help. Good luck

Thanks malteserzz - I didn't want to 'intrude' on the tamoxifen thread as so many people going through actual treatment
