Question about hypoechoic lesion

I received my report from a left breast ultrasound that shows "a hypoechoic lesion measuring 8 mm.Impression:solid lesion of the left breast. BI-RADS 4 day- suspicious finding- biopsy should be considered." I have never had an abnormality until now.
Should I start to panic? Is this considered a large lesion?

Hi.
I agree with the recommendation of doing a biopsy on the suspicious lesion on your left breast.  That will give a more definite diagnosis of whether the mass is benign or malignant.  An 8mm lesion is still considered small.  You should go to your breast doctor for further evaluation.  
Take care.
