What Affects the Test
Reasons you may not be able to
have the test or why the results may not be helpful include:
- If you have bleeding problems or take blood
thinners. People with these conditions will get specific instructions from
the doctor before the biopsy.
- If you can't lie still during a
needle biopsy. You may need
general anesthesia for the biopsy.
