Thyra M. Humphreys Center for Breast Health

How do I prepare for my biopsy?

  • Your physician or the nursing staff at the center should review the medication list that you have provided to our office prior to your biopsy. If you are on any blood thinning medications (i.e. aspirin, ibuprofen, Coumadin…) and no one has discussed these medications with you, please bring it to our attention prior to your biopsy date.
  • There are no food restrictions before having your biopsy; however, we recommend eating something light.
  • If you have any questions in regards to your biopsy prior to your scheduled date and time please feel free to contact any of our nursing staff or our clinical navigator.
  • If you have been provided with pre-medication for your procedure, we strongly encourage you to arrange transportation for the ride home after being discharged.
