There are certain radiologic clues that indicate a higher or lower likelihood of a mass being malignant, and a BI-RADS 5 means that the radiologist feels the images are highly suspicious for malignancy.

However, you are correct that the only way to know for certain is through biopsy.

My suggestion would be that you and your family prepare for the worst, but hope for the best.

Best wishes to you and your aunt...
