What are the procedures to be done for the lump in the breast?

I have lump in right breast for the last five months. I recently did mammography which showed some fibrocystic disease and insisted upon FNAC the results of which will be obtained today (02-07-2012).
Could you please suggest me the urther procedures to be done as I dont want to take chance.

Hi. Welcome to HMC. You have not mentioned your age. For young females mostly it is fibroadenoma. For old females it can be cancer. FNAC is quite reliable test but to be 100% sure best is excision biopsy means take out the lump by surgery and send it for histopathology. Other option is true cut biopsy. Advantage of excision biopsy is that if lump is benign means simple then no further treatment is required.
