Erin received a message from Dr. Cua a little while ago which said, “Your recent fine needle aspiration showed a tumor. However, they cannot fully characterize it without more tissue. I’d like to have you come in for a ‘core biopsy’. Brenda will contact you for an appointment”.
Since the message came after 6pm, I assume that we will hear from Brenda (his office assistant?) early next week.
I think that a core biopsy is a with a larger needle allowing for a larger sample.
