Await results: You have had testing done and the results will be out soon. Cysts are not usually cancerous, but that is not always the case.

Wait for biopsy: It is not possible to say at this time, what the biopsy will show. Majority of the breast lumps are benign. It would be prudent to follow your doctor's advice, no matter what the results of biopsy.

The biopsy: results will answer your question definitively, but the majority of these lesions are benign. The inconclusive fine needle aspiration results don't make it more likely to be malignant.
