what percentage of ah is cancer?

I had a steriotactic biopsy 1 week ago that showed ah. I had a surgical biopsy on monday and  I am waiting for the  results. I wondered if anyone knows the % of ah and cancer. I feel a little frightened , and my family thinks i am being silly for worrying. thanks, laura

Often there is additional treatment after removal depending on the ER/PR positivity response.   Regards ....
