comedo carcinoma breast

I had a small lump in left breast upper outer quadrant. Ultra sound showed multiple cystic areas with very small adenomas in both breasts.The lump in question was 1.5 cm in size. As I had a history of fibroadenoma removed few years back I got this lump removed with some free margin.
The biopsy report says " 10 to 12 ducts filled with necrotic cells sugestive of comedo carcinoma.
What should be the line of management.
