Participants with suspicious breast lesions by mammography will undergo fine needle aspiration (FNA) under ultrasound guidance. The FNA will be read by the cytopathologist and analyzed in the breast cancer detection cartridge. All patients will receive standard of care (Ultrasound-guided core needle biopsy and diagnosis). We will also receive FNA collected from 60 patients with palpable lesions in South Africa and analyze them samples in our lab with the same method.
