Screening and Tests for Hyperplasia

Screening for hyperplasia usually involves a biopsy—either a cone needle biopsy or a surgical biopsy—wherein a tissue sample is removed to be analyzed under a microscope. This procedure is usually done in an operating room under general anesthesia. If the doctor has trouble feeling the lump, an MRI, breast x-ray or mammogram may be conducted to help pinpoint the location.

If the cells under analysis are not cancerous but look distorted, your doctor may make a diagnosis of atypical hyperplasia.
