Thanks for the query.
Sometimes the normal breast tissue or fatty tissue as told by your doctor can be interpreted as swelling.
Anyhow better to get examined once.
If your doctor suggests go for sonomammography of the breast. If nothing is there, no need to worry.
If some mass if found you may need fine needle aspiration cytology to find out the nature of the mass.
Take care.
