Hi welcome to health care magic

It's good that you have done FNAC report...

Your condition is proliferative breast disease and atypia present.... So it is not malignancy but yes chances are there that it can be converted into malignancy in future...

Biopsy is more confirmatory, so biopsy can be taken and sent for histopathological examination...

Regular follow up necessary...

Consult oncosurgeon or near by general surgeon for examination and discuss your treatment plan with him

Hope this will help

Take care
