2 weeks ago I noticed my nipple was somewhat retracted. I felt underneath and noticed lump under the nipple area. I was scheduled for a mammogram which returned abnormal with 2 masses high suspicious for malignancy. I was then scheduled for a biopsy. One was done in the office and the second was scheduled for a stereo tactic because of the location. I received the results back on the first and it benign and classified as some type of fibroid. The other results are not back yet. Has anyone heard of a benign and malignant mass in the same breast that are very close in proximity?
