It is not the suction that directly results in obtaining a sample but rather the cutting action of the needle. The suction helps to pull tissue into the cutting path of the needle and to move the resulting fragments up into the needle’s shaft (Fig.

An additional difficulty arises from the tendency of most aspirators to approach lesions with the needle positioned tangentially to the skin, rather than with a near vertical or perpendicular approach.
