Hypoechoic nodule

I had a sonography test that followed a mammography.  The report recommends that I have an ultra sound guided biopsy because a nodule was found.  The report says an" irregularly marginated nodule."  Is this bad?  I have a history of dense breasts that have changed a lot over previous visits.  Do you think a biopsy is needed?

Thanks for your help.

Hi,
Yes,I think a biopsied.is needed.The fact that the nodule in your breast  has  irregular margins, warrants a biopsy to achieve a correct diagnosis..A lesion having irregular borders,doesn't necessarily mean something bad,sometimes fibroadenomas (benign lumps) can present this way,as do other benign lumps.,but the only way to make sure what this nodule represents is to have a biopsy so the tissues extracted can be examine by a pathologist.
Best wishes and hoping that your biopsy will result in benign findings
