A mammogram on March 30, 2012, revealed breast calsifications in my right breast that were forming a pattern which they considered "suspicious". I had a biopsy on April 17, 2012, which showed "A Typical" cells, but no cancer. My doctor recommended I follow up with the breast surgeon/ specialist. The surgeon recommended I have a lumpectomy, even though no cancer was detected. Is a lumpectomy necessary at this point when no cancerous cells were found in the biopsy? My lumpectomy is scheduled for May 14, 2012.
