Hi mrsarchie  

Thank you for posting. 

It’s good that the breast care nurse was able to tell you that no malignancy was found in the breast biopsy you had taken.  

As you’ve now received this letter stating the appointment you’ve been given at the breast clinic is for further assessments, you can give the breast care nurse a call for more information about this and what they would like to double check.   

If you do need to attend the breast clinic for further assessment this doesn’t mean that you have breast cancer just more information is needed about what was seen on the mammogram.  

Although it can be an anxious time having to have further tests it may be helpful to know that the majority of women who do need further tests do not have breast cancer.
