Suspicious lump with "vascularity"

I had a mammogram and ultrasound on Monday, and they found a lump in my left breast that is suspicious. It is 8 mm in size, and the radiologist said that there was "vascularity" which I am told means that there is a blood supply to it. In addition, my lymph nodes under both arms are sore. They have scheduled me for a needle biopsy on Friday. My question is whether a benign lump would have a vascularity. I have been searching the internet, but am not really finding much information on this. Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks!
