Why worry: Call your doctor and ask why are you being seen. A benign condition of your breast in the past is a good sign. Maybe just need to have a breast physical exam to correlate to the mammogram. Maybe scar tissue from the prior surgery. Maybe the fibroadenoma is changed. Ask questions at your visit as i cannot tell what your doctor is thinking now.

Difficult to: speculate, it may or may not involve the area previously biopsied. If you are very worried, call your doctor and ask what he/she is concerned about. Otherwise you will get an answer at your appointment. Most of the time these recalls turn out to be nothing of concern.
