Fine needle biopsy Cracow

Fine needle biopsy in Cracow - precise diagnosis of cancer at the Prokocim Medical Center

Fine needle biopsy, also known as BAC (fine needle aspiration biopsy), is an advanced medical technique widely used in the diagnosis of various types of cancer, such as thyroid tumors, salivary gland tumors, or breast cancer. At the Prokocim Medical Center in Krakow, we offer fine needle biopsy performed by qualified specialists, ensuring an accurate and comprehensive assessment of the patient’s health.

Our fine needle biopsy procedures are based on the precise collection of cytological material from suspicious lesions using a fine needle. Thanks to the use of controlled ultrasonography (USG) during the procedure, we can effectively and precisely locate lesions, which increases the accuracy of diagnostics. This method is less invasive and usually does not require the use of anesthesia.

Preparation for a biopsy is simple – the patient should have up-to-date test results such as ultrasound, X-ray, CT or blood counts, as well as information about previous surgeries or histopathological examinations. Fine needle biopsy is safe and the risk of complications is minimal. Most often, there are no serious side effects after the procedure, only a slight bruising at the site of needle insertion.

The advantage of fine needle biopsy is the possibility of quick initial diagnosis of malignant neoplasm and, if confirmed, further treatment.

We invite you to familiarize yourself with the full offer and price list of fine needle biopsies performed in our medical center in Krakow.
