  1. Meditation may help women reduce anxiety with breast biopsy- Study Meditation may help women reduce anxiety with breast biopsy- Study Large-core needle stereotactic breast biopsy, sometimes just called 'core biopsy' A brief session of guided mindfulness-based meditation may help women undergoing a stereotactic breast biopsy to feel less anxious, a small study suggests.

Past research has found that it can alter brain activity in areas associated with emotional regulation, attention and self-awareness, the study team notes in Journal of the American College of Radiology.
