What Is An Enhancing Nodule?

I just had an MRI (with contrast dye) of both breasts.  My doctor told me that the radiologist report says that I have an 8mm enhancing nodule, anterolateral aspect of left breast.

What exactly is an enhancing nodule, and where is the anterolateral aspect of the left breast exactly located? (I am scheduled to have a ultrasound guided fine needle later this week)

Thank you!

Anteriolateral--- on the side and to the front. Enhancing --- in plain english > showing up more than would normally be expected or more than the other tissues in that area.
