Atypical breast cells
I just had a breast biopsy and the doctor said no cancer so far but there are atypical cells and I will be having an outpt procedure to test additional tissue around the area.  Is there still a chance that it could be cancer?

I wouldn't think so but atypical cells might very well mean an increased risk of developing Breast Cancer in the future. With a more specific diagnosis there may well be some type of surgery recommended to remove the area in question. From what you state this is what this next procedure is all about. It could be called an excisional biopsy or even lumpectomy. Depending on the Pathology studies of the additional tissue removed some further treatment may even recommended.   Best wishes ......
