Self Hypnotic Relaxation Makes Breast Biopsy Easier and Less Painful

The first thing that a health professional has to cope with while performing a breast biopsy is the stress of a woman and this can be well controlled by an old technique called// hypnosis, which not only controlled the anxiety and pain faced by the patient but is also cost effective and avoids side effects.

Research

At Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a study was done on out-patients undergoing large-core needle biopsy (LCNB), the group was randomly divided into three and the first group received standard care, second received empathetic attention and the third group underwent hypnosis.

The Unique Methodology of Hypnosis

Results of the study

The doctors also felt they could do their job better because their patient is not anxious.
