These are: relatively small however if it were me I would request excisional biopsies (remove and examine) This, of cours, depends upon ability to LOCALIZE exact position and ability to excise with minimal destruction of normal tissue NEEDLE BIOPSY could provide that method CONSULT WITH a BOARD CERTIFIED BREAST SURGEON! Good luck and I hope this helps! Dr Z
