I had two core needle breast biopsies of two complex cysts. One specimen has black sections on the tissue. Does this indicate malignancy?

    No, I have not received results yet. The 2 biopsies were done today. As I was getting dressed, I saw the two specimens in containers. One was just clear pink liquid without any observable solids. The other one had multiple sizable samples in a clear liquid. These cuts were yellowish/whitish and had some black spots.

      I know this was posted a month ago but I haven't been able to respond, have you gotten your results yet?

    Have you gotten your biopsy results yet? I'm not a doctor but think when a Pathologist does his work he marks sections with a special ink as does the one doing the biopsies to mark say left and right or up and down.
