In brief: Not necessarily
Bmris are used for "in breast" staging of newly diagnosed cancer and also as an adjunct to mammograms for screening of high risk women.
You would obviously know if you fell into the first category. Talk with your doctor if you think you feel it may be the 2nd. You may benefit from evaluation by a breast surgeon.

In brief: No
Worry never helped anything.
Breast MRI can be very helpful at evaluating cancer and is also useful when no cancer is present.
