    There is in Spanish a biopsy made with a thin needle to make a test to those tissues than can be carcinogenic, called BACAF ( Biopsia Aspirativa con Aguja Fina or Punción con Agua Fina). This is made is the breast and thyroid and far as I know.

    What is the formal equivalent in American and British English?

    Thank you

    I think it's "FINE NEEDLE BIOPSY"
