Worried and confused

I found a lump last week and got an urgent referral. During the appointment there was talk of a cyst from several of the staff (initial examination and mammogram), but after they did a core biopsy they said they suspected a "cystic cancer". I'm confused about how a visual inspection of the tissue/fluid withdrawn during the biopsy could reveal this and why they would give me this information before actually getting the results. Now I have to sit quaking in my boots for two weeks wondering if they told me this because the actual diagnosis is going to be so spectacularly awful that I had to be braced for the very worst. Has anyone else had an experience like this? What does it all mean? Am I just over-reacting?
