In brief: It is unusual,
but it can sometimes happen.
Options include more imaging(for example breast mri) to re-evaluate and determine if there actually is a lesion, and re-biopsy. The bottom line is that mammogram abnormality must still be explained, and the first biopsy unfortunately was unable to do that.

In brief: Can happen.
Keep looking for lesion.
May need MRI breast and MRI guided biopsy.
