Breast Mouse

My wife (35 y/o) has a breast mouse on her left breast which is moving. This mouse has been with her for years.
She gave birth to our only child three years ago and the baby had been breast fed for about two years. She is not preganant.
Now she feels some pains on her right breast.  She saw her doctor and did a sonar, the result was okay according to her doctor and radiologyst.
here is the result summary: Right breast shows rather well defined solid lobulated hypoechoic lesion at 10 O'clock position measuring 1.9X0.9 cm. No evidence of ductectacia - Bilateral small reactionarty axillary LN are noted.

Doctors suggested there is nothting to be worried however she was advised to take sample from her breast tissue for the sake of being 100% sure there is no danger.
I would like to know your opinion about this sampling. is it going to cause any problem?
Your help is highly appreciated.

Dear Hossein_Karami:  Whether or not to biopsy a breast mass depends upon the level of suspicion of the radiologist and the surgeon.  Without evaluation, including breast examination and ultrasound, it is not possible for us to speculate on what might be recommended in your wife’s situation.  Biopsy is a relatively safe and well tolerated procedure but as with any procedure, there is always a small possibility of complications.  You should discuss this with the doctors, and if you are concerned consider a second opinion.
