Tru-cut biopsy

Just wondered if anyone has had, or knows what a tru-cut biopsy is? My sister, who had cancer at the age of nine, who will be 41 on May 24th this year, went to the gyn. oncologist today, and he said there is something suspicious, and he wants her to come in on, of all days, her birthday, May 24th for the biopsy of the area. She has to get knocked out for it.

Thanks for any info from anyone who has had this done, or knows what it is like.

Take care and God bless you all!

Tru-cut biopsy

Hi Elana,
I haven't heard of that procedure, but I did do a search on yahoo browser by typing tru-cut biopsy, and lots of sites came up.
Under oncolink FAQ I found the following definition for this procedure though.
"Tru-Cut" biopsy which is a small core of node, that provides more tissue than a needle aspirate, but much less than a whole node surgical biopsy. The advantage is that a Tru-Cut can be done with just a local anesthetic in most cases.
If you go to yahoo and type that in, you will get a ton of information on this procedure.
Best of luck to your sister!! God love her for getting through cancer at such a young age! She is living proof that this dreaded diease can indeed be beaten! She is a trooper for sure!
Hugs and prayers for you both.
