I am waiting to be booked for what my doctor calls a core-biopsy and it is taking too long. As I wait I would like to research and gain more information. I would like an interpretation of this report please. These are the results of a fine needle aspiration on left breast:
The smears are highly cellular. Cohesive branching monolayers of mildly pleomorphic ductal epithelial cells are present in a background containing frequent bare bipolar nuclei, occasional macrophages and some myxoid stroma. Within the epithelial cell aggregates, nuclear streaming and an admixed myoepithelial cell population is revealed. No dissociated malignant cell population or true papillary epithelial cell aggregates with fibrovascular cores are identified.

This is a picture suggestive of a fibroadenoma. It is not a malignant bump. But, FNAC identifies only the part that has been included in that needle. So to confirm, we do a trucut biopsy which tests the entire lump and is conclusive. 99 % this is a non-cancerous lump.
