An incisional biopsy is a medical test to remove a piece of tissue from a lesion or mass. The tissue is then tested to find out what it is. An excisional biopsy is a medical test in which the whole lesion or mass is removed and tested. Your provider will decide with you which is the better option. This is based on the location and size of the lesion or mass. If the lesion is found to be cancerous, further surgery may be needed to remove the whole thing.

Some of these lesions require mastectomy while others can be treated by local excision, aspiration or even conservative measures.
