Hi,
Microcalcifications are extremely common in the breast, and have many benign causes.The appearance of clustered calcification on x-ray, gives clues to the radiologist,but not definite answers,so it is standard procedure in most cases to biopsy the area because it's the only way to rule out cancer.
Statistically,a high percentage of indeterminate calcifications turn out to be from harmless causes and I hope your biopsy report will state benign results.
Best wishes...
