Doctor :   if there is some doubt about the fibroadenoma, it can biopsied, to make sure that it is harmless.
Doctor :   A mammogram is an X-ray test of the breasts (mammary glands) used to screen for breast problems, such as a lump, and whether a lump is fluid-filled (a cyst) or a solid mass
User :   only after mammogram the DR will let me know if biopsy is required
Doctor :   yep
User :   okay
Doctor :   Mammograms are a good way of identifying abnormalities in the breast but they don't always show whether those abnormalities are benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Further tests are sometimes necessary.
