A breast marker is a tiny titanium or stainless-steel marker, smaller than a sesame seed. Breast biopsy markers are placed during a breast biopsy procedure to identify the area where breast tissue was removed.

If the spot in your breast turns out to be benign, the titanium clip serves as an indicator for future exams, to show the doctor that area has already been checked and a second biopsy on the same spot is not necessary.

you will be awake during your biopsy and should have little discomfort. Many women report little pain and no scarring on the breast. However, certain patients, including those with dense breast tissue, or abnormalities near the chest wall or behind the nipple may be more sensitive during the procedure.
