flat epithelial atypia
had stereotatic biopsy for cluster of microcalcifications. Biopsy was benign but focal mild flat epithelial atypia is seen. What does this mean? Should I have some sort of followup like excisional biopsy or mamo f/u or both?? Thanks.

I have a very similiar story, although I've had the excisional biopsy and am currently waiting for results.

I'm awaiting the excisional biopsy. I will go in next month. How much is typically removed (perimeter, entire area, etc)?

How long were you told you would have to wait for results?

In my case, they removed the hematoma left from the stereotactic biopsy, which wound up being about the size of a large gumball.

I was told my results would be in in about 4 days, but I got them at my post-op visit 8 days after the procedure.
