If you look up the words in the dictionary, the explanation is almost interchangeable. 10 years ago, the terms while not as technical were used for the same in a dictionary.

Arabella,

Not sure why the "lumpectomy" was referred to as "BX".   That is confusing.
Wondering if it could have been a typo.
Maybe ask surgeon's office to check about lumpectomy being referred to as BX with the pathology
department.
If there was a typo, consider asking to have the report corrected.


With caring and positive thoughts,
Grateful for today..........Judy

Thanks, Judy.  On my path report for first surgery, it refers to my BX.  Then on my second surgery, which was the lumpectomy, that path report  refers to lumpectomy as a BX, so I thought it meant biopsy...I wondered why they didn't use some form of abbreviation for lumpectomy.

Kaye,

According to at least 2 medical abbreviations lists:
           Bx = biopsy

According to at least 2 other medical abbreviations lists:
          BX =    biopsy
                      Bacitracin X
                      Bithorax

Thanks for asking.   Looks like both BX and Bx are used for biopsy.
Will wait to see if others post with a more definitive answer before adding BX/Bx
to 1st post Master List.

I was looking for this list the other day, Beck, and didn't know where to locate it.  Thanks for bringing it up.

Does BX mean biopsy???
