Preparing for Your Visit

Prior to your breast cryotherapy for fibroadenoma treatment, the patient or caretaker must make sure that the following items are addressed:
  • A core biopsy diagnosis of fibroadenoma is required prior to cryotherapy
  • If your breast imaging and biopsy was done at another facility, drop it off with Outside Imaging. The imaging must include pre-biopsy and biopsy ultrasound, as well as a complete biopsy pathology report at least five days prior to your scheduled procedure  Outside Imaging hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • It is not necessary to stop blood thinning medication prior to your procedure.
  • It is not necessary to fast prior to this procedure

The procedure is performed at the Jefferson-Honickman Breast Imaging Center, located at our Center City Philadelphia facility
