    Cyst
    I am not qualified to take that guess but I do know that many biopsys come back perfectly clear. Everyone is different and our breasts are also, some women regularly have non cancerous cysts. Please don't worry. It may be nothing and if it is something than it sounds like you had regular checkups so caught early. Let the docs do their thing and keep us posted, we will be here to help whenever you need.

    I have read that 80% of all
    I have read that 80% of all biopsies are benigh so the odds are in favor of it not being cancerous with the stats for all combined. However when individual it is either 0% or 100% - as 'you' either will be positive or not as one can't be 80% negative and 20% positive, it's an either/or situtation.

    biopsy
    I don't know the exact percentages, but I think it's about 80% OK & 20% not benign.
    I have had 2 biopsies--not the most pleasant experience, but, by far, not the worst
    experience that I have had. The techs/docs are great--they wouldn't be doing the job
    if they didn't want to. So, it's definitely doable to find out for sure. Wishing you the best of luck...

    Biopsy
    I don't percentages either but it's always better to know these things. Even if it turns out to be breast cancer, it would be early and probably very treatable. Try to remember that you don't anything right now and try not to worry. We'll be thinking of you. Keep us posted.
