Mammogram showed macro calcifications but ultrasound is normal. Family history of bc and uterine. Is a biopsy required for further evaluation?

In brief: It depends

It depends on the actual appearance on the mammogram.
Unfortunately, only the specialist reviewing the mammogram can make that recommendation.

In brief: Not enough info

to make an assessment.
Whether or not calcifications need to be biopsied primarily depends on their size, shape, and distribution. If they are typically benign based on those criteria, biopsy is usually not indicated.
