    Char, you should ask your doctor about this, the one who referred you for the ultrasound. S/he can interpret the results of the test for you, and discuss what, if anything, needs to be done going forward. Take care - PJH

    Char, this is definitely a question to ask your doctor; s/he can explain exactly what these findings mean, and whether you should be concerned. Please call whatever doctor ordered the ultrasound; they'd be the one to interpret this for you. Good luck - PJH

      Char, by now you've spoken to the surgeon; I hope s/he was able to shed some light on what the ultrasound showed. If you're going to have a biopsy, you can take comfort in the fact that 85% of all breast biopsies are negative; so the odds that this isn't malignant are very definitely on your side. Best of luck to you as you continue to go through the diagnostic process - PJH
