Brief Answer:
inflammation is body defence.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, welcome back.
There is positive family history of breast cancer. I think they have done biopsy as to rule out any possible remote chance of malignancy.
Inflammation is bodies defensive response to any kind of injury or infection. There are many cells in body which fights against foreign insulting organism or cause. Cells gather at site of injury. This collective process is calles as inflammation.
It usually rule out chances of cancer. So no need to worry. I would like to advice please consult your doctor again and ask for any treatment if clinically indicated.
Sorry for inconvenience but you have to check your mail settings or contact customer care for mail delivery.

Hopefully I have answered your query.
