    here's a {{{hug}}} for you to pass on to your mother....may these resources help you to understand this illness and treatment options.
    yes, day surgery for a breast biopsy is routine. in philadelphia area, some patients are even having mastectomy and discharged 24 hours later with homecare referral.
