What does a mass in the breast on a mammogram report indicate?

I had breast reduction in sept 2016. After a routine 3D mammogram last week, I went back for a follow up appointment because of distortion that they thought was scar tissue. the radiologist saw a mass today. He recommend a biopsy due to a suspicious finding. Are all masses cancerous?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Not all masses are cancerous, in fact but only a small proportion of masses are cancerous and most of them are benign and harmless. Better to take a biopsy and evaluate. You can go do a USG guided biopsy for good results.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
