I didn't see the individual take out a new needle, but I also wasn't paying attention to this part because I get nervous when I see them take the needle out, so I choose to look away. Therefore, I have no idea if they used a new needle or not. From what I've read and other similar posts on here, it is unlikely for a phlebotomist to reuse a needle. I've heard that there a safety precautions

breast: first fine needle aspiration, now a core-needle aspiration...

A fine needle aspiration can only obtain tissue samples of the size that can fit through the needle. Such small samples may not adequately refect the composition of an entire suspicious area. A core biopsy obtains larger samples, which may be more representative of the area in question. However, "the final word," or a completely definitive answer,  can only be obtained through a pathologist's study of an entire specimen resulting from an excicion biopsy. Best wishes, bluebutterfly p.s. If you have additional questions, please add comments to this same thread, rather that starting a new thread. Thanks.
