Biopsies (FNAC) Do Not Cause Cancer To Spread.

Misconceptions and wrong ideas about cancer can lead to needless worry and even hinder diagnosis and treatment decisions. To make sure that this doesn’t happen, I will attempt to dispel some myths with facts.

FACT:

BIOPSIES (FNAC) DO NOT CAUSE CANCER TO SPREAD.

Many people worry that disturbing a tumour with a needle or surgery to perform a biopsy will allow cancer cells to ‘escape’ to other parts of the body. Actually, there have been many studies that have dispelled this common belief.

A biopsy is required to answer a very important question – “Do I have cancer?”

Your doctor will order a biopsy if he/ she suspects that you have cancer. Actually biopsies are used to not only detect cancer but also certain other diseases.
