More Tests

If a cancer diagnosis is made, your doctor might recommend more tests. For example, an MRI can show how much cancer is in the affected breast relative to the normal tissue right under and next to the breast cancer. This information may help the surgeon plan the extent of surgery. Plus, an MRI can help evaluate the other breast to see if it’s OK. Other tests, such as blood work, chest X-ray, and bone scan, might be done to see if the cancer has spread to other parts of the body.
