Galactocele? Turned out to be cancer?

Had my report back from the breast clinic. Has anyone been told they have a galactocele which turned out to be cancer after biopsies? 

I am hoping I am worrying over nothing. 

my report said I have a 18mm mass, in the left central upper breast, likely to be a galactocele but have requested a further ultrasound and biopsy due to the mass being solid.
2nd of July is my next appointment. 

I am breastfeeding and they wanted to wait to check for any change as they don't like to biopsy when lactating. 

If anyone has had anything similar I would like to hear positive or negative stories. So I know what I'm looking at. 

many thanks
