    It is true that some benign tumors can become malignant! It is however very rare for that to happen! It is highly unlikely that a needle biopsy can cause a tumor to become malignant! Malignancy is caused by a mutation below the cellular level! Mutations are either genetic, chromosomal or caused by damage from chemicals, NOT damage from macro pressures! People do not get cancer from blunt force trauma or cuts, they get cancer from the cellular changes caused by radiation or smoking or!!!etc! A needle biopsy can show if a tumor is benign or malignant and is necessary to be repeated if your tumor is at risk for becoming malignant because early detection could save your life! Some people with non-cancerous tumors elect to have the affected part of their body removed anyway to be sure that the malignancy can never form (e!g! breasts, uterus, prostate)! Another reason for repeat needle biopsies is that a needle can only reach one tiny point in the organ and there could be cancer elsewhere that the needle did not touch (e!g! liver)! If a doctor has advised you to have a needle biopsy, please do it! It CANNOT cause you to develop cancer! Really!
