solid mass or complex cyst

I was diagnosed by Mammograms to show a solid mass or complex cyst in my left breast, MIR was confirmed as well.  The biopsy is recommended, but the mass could not be seen through US, I am so confused.  Thanks.

Each test "sees" something different and also "sees" the same thing differently. That is why the test are done in conjuction; to reveal the entire picture. There are several types of biopsies and I'm sure one will be appropriate for your particular situation. Mammography is also used as guidance for biopsy; not only Ultrasound.    Regards ....
