A needle biopsy isn't done just to sample for fluid. Some cells are usually obtained and sent to the Pathology Lab where they are studied under the microscope. A report should be forthcoming.
If she has had the testing you mention and the needle biopsy without insurance it seems that she could have any other treatments or tests at the same location. Another biopsy wouldn't be necessary unless it was recommended by her Physician. I'm not sure where you are now but I suggest that your Daughter make an appointment with a Breast Specialist / Surgeon and have them review all the tests that were done and then proceed with whatever is advised. Insurance isn't required to obtain health care .. you can always make arrangements to actually pay for the services.  Regards .....
