Non-neoplastic and Proliferative Lesions
In inflammatory conditions such as mastitis and abscess formation, surgery can be avoided by the use of fine-needle aspiration (FNA). In conjunction with microbiologic studies of the aspirated material, FNA can provide valuable information about the etiology of an inflammatory condition of the breast (lactation, infection, or trauma). Fine-needle aspiration can also serve as a therapeutic modality when evacuating abscess material or cyst contents.
