Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for your question.

Yes. A biopsy of this lesion is necessary.

The pattern of vascularity of a lesion, along with other characteristics seen on ultrasound, help predict the possibility of malignancy.

During the biopsy procedure, the physician will insert a very fine needle and remove a sample of the lesion. The sample will be sent to the pathology department and examined under a microscope. This will confirm if the lesion is benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous).

I have had this procedure done. The area will be anesthetized. All you will feel is a pin prick. Trust me, have it done.
