A biopsy is performed to identify the cause of a lump, mass or other abnormal condition. The procedure is performed with the insertion of a small needle under imaging guidance to remove a sample of tissue from the abnormal area. The sample is then sent to a pathologist who will determine the nature of the abnormality.
