Dear etolleson:  There is no way to guess at which lesions (if any) are cancerous.  A mammogram and ultrasound can increase or decrease the level of suspicion but a biopsy may be the only way to know for certain.  Your doctor may be able to shed some light on this for you - as it relates to your situation.
