Hi Quisha2010!

Thank you for your question and welcome!

Unfortunately, we could have no way of telling you what the chances of you having cancer are. I have a few questions for you-

Did you find a lump in your breast, in order to warrant a biopsy? When you say you have a family history, can you tell us a bit about that? Who in your family has had breast cancer and how old were they when they were diagnosed?

Your doctor may have done a quick evaluation of your tissue but it needs to be evaluated in-depth at a laboratory for a proper diagnosis. This should not take too long.

When did you have the biopsy and how long were you told you had to wait before finding out the results?

Please update us soon!
